Side Braid Updo

Hello everyone!

So how many of you have holiday parties or occasions to attend and need a holiday hairstyle? Have any of you used any of my ’12 Days of Holiday Hairstyles?” I really hope so! And if you have, I’d really love to hear about it. It’s always encouraging to know that people like what you’re putting out there! Feel free to connect with me on Facebook or Twitter to let me know what you think!

Big Side Braid with Bun

This looks is easy and works perfectly on unwashed hair. Just spray a little dry shampoo, tease the top at to the crown, and braid it all the way down. You can see in the video at the bottom of this post how I pinned up the braid. This will also work perfectly on shorter hair as well. Or a dutch braid like the Katniss braid I did a while back. Oh the options!!

Well what do you think? Easy & pretty, right? Feel free to pin & share if you like it! Thanks!

Here is the video for the big side braid. Hope you enjoy!

Oh and if you’d like to get caught up, here are the others so far:

II have tried the roap braid into a Bun, the braided headband, and a couple others. II am hair challenged but have gotten the first compliments ever on my hair while wearing these. Keep em coming! And thank you!

    I absolutely love this style!! I’m definitely going to give it a try. After watching the video, I’m convinced we have the same hair thickness and texture so I’m convinced this will actually work for me! 😀

    […] I actually like this one. Not too popular on here, but it’s fun and actually can be a little fancy. Once again, easy, pretty, versatile – awesome. Here’s the original post. […]
