Braid/Plait Half Updo

Quick and easy 5 minute hairstyleThis is a great hairstyle if you’ve got no more than 5 minutes but want something a little different than your usual hair do.

This hairstyle works best on medium to long hair. It’ll work on clean or unwashed hair equally as well. I love simple styles like this, don’t you?!

What you’ll need:

  • clear hair elastic

  • small bobby pins

  • texturising spray or cream

  • hairspray with light hold

Follow these steps:

  1. Part your hair where you normally part it. Side or middle, either will work.

  2. Grab a section on either side of the part. Aim for each section to be about as wide as two fingers (a couple of inches).

  3. With each section, loosely braid them, heading towards the back of your head where they should meet. Use the texturising spray or cream and apply it to the ends so the braids don’t come out.

  4. Once you’ve braided both, use your clear elastic to secure the braids together at the back of your head. You can tie this high or low, it’s your choice.

  5. Use a couple of bobby pins, slide these underneath each braid, close to your scalp (so you can’t see them). This will keep the loose braids in place and stop them falling out.

  6. Spray with a bit of hairspray and you’re done!

Hairstyles like this are so simple, you could literally do this in the car on your way to work – but not while you’re driving of course!
