Step one: Brush your hair through to remove any knots or tangles.
Step two: Starting on the top of your head, about two inches back from your hairline, divide a layer of hair into three sections and start braiding. Gather more hair from each side as you work your way down the back of your head. For more details on how to French-braid, check out our easy-to-follow guide.
Step three: Once you reach the nape of your neck, all the hair should have been gathered into the braid. Braid the remaining hair using a regular three-strand technique. Secure at the very ends with a small hair tie.
Step four: Wind the braid into a low bun at the nape of your neck and secure with a few bobby pins.
Step five: For a little added romance, loosen the style a little by placing your fingertips on the crown of your head and pulling the hair forwards a little. Don't pull it out though! Mist with Bold Control Hairspray and you're done.
Simple, chic and easy to style, what's not to love about this updo?
