When it comes to going out hairstyles, you need something that can party as hard as you can, without becoming an unintentionally disheveled mess. To that end, braided updos are perfect.

They keep your hair completely under control (for dancing purposes), look cute, and are impressively versatile! To inspire your next night out look, we've put together a photo gallery of some especially gorgeous styles.

Lots of options

The best thing about braided hairstyles is that they come in so many different forms. From fishtail braids to rope twists to intricate multi-strand weaving, you need never be stuck in a braid rut!

Styling tip - When fishtail braiding the lengths of your hair, secure it at the top with a hair tie to make holding the hair easier while you work on it. When you're done, gently remove the tie and use it to secure the ends.

Different textures for different looks

Changing the texture of your hair can create a totally different look. Mussed locks will lend your braided 'do a bohemian feel while a sleek finish will result in a polished, minimalist vibe.

Apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout then blow-dry your hair in large twisted sections. This will set your hair into loose waves that will add volume and texture to your braid.

For a smoother style, straighten your hair after applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.

What do you think? Which braided hairstyle will you wear the next time you go out?
