Braided updo for platinum blonde hair

There are some mercifully practical hairstyles out there that work for just about every occasion imaginable - like the ponytail or ballerina bun. This simple braided updo also falls into that category. Whether you need a hairstyle for work, a workout or even a wedding, it just works. All of the hair is kept up and under control so frizz and flyaways don't even get a look in.

To find out how to recreate the look on your own hair, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below.

Step one

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream by L'Oréal Paris then dry our hair using a paddle brush to guide it straight. Brush your hair through, part it down the middle and split it into two equal halves.

Step two

French braid your hair from the top of your head all the way down to the nape of your neck on each side. Then, braid each side all the way down to the ends and secure with small hair ties. It doesn't have to be perfect as this is the kind of updo that works really well with a little added texture.

Step three

Intertwine the braids at the nape of your neck and pin into a low chignon. Make sure you tuck the ends in to hide the elastics.

Step four

Spray your new style all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to further protect against flyaways and to give you up to 24 hours of great hold.

What do you think? Could this be your new go-to 'do for just about everything?
