How to Do a French Braid Updo

Learn This Deceptively Easy Braided Updo

Here's an excerpt of a cool hair how-to from OnSugar blog Beauty & the Blog, who recently whipped up this braided updo for her 16-year-old daughter, Sage:

Sage found an image on Tumblr with a French braid done in a "S" shape. I duplicated it for her for school:

  • DIY: French braid following from the crown around to the side hairline, back to the other side and along the neckline; just like the pic above. Tuck up the ends and pin — don't forget to "lock" your pins by crossing two in an "X" formation.
  • Have fine hair? Blow-dry upside down with some mousse which gives added volume and texture. Don't worry about flyways as it adds to the texture. But if the flyaways really bug you, use a soft toothbrush with a hint of pomade to gently comb them down.
