1. Milkmaid French Braid Updo
Looking for a cute and stylish way to keep your hair out of your face? Milkmaid braid is a super easy hairstyle that you can do in literally 5 minutes.
Start by parting your hair down the center of your head. Braid each half of the hair into a separate French braid and secure with a clear elastic band. Pancake the braids to make them appear bigger and thicker. Next, cross one braid across the top of your head and secure it with a bobby pin. Make sure to hide the end of the braid by tucking it under. Repeat the same thing with the second braid. Secure both braids with lots and lots of bobby pins. Pull out a few face-framing pieces at the front and – voilà – your stunning updo is done!
2. Dutch Braided Hair
Use the Dutch braid technique to make this cute, boho hairdo that can easily be worn dressy or casual. We’ve seen this braided hairstyle all around Pinterest and Instagram so we had to include it. If you still aren’t familiar with this braiding technique, don’t worry, it’s very easy to master. The Dutch braid is just an inverted/3D French braid. So, if you know how to braid a classic French braid, then this one is going to be easy for you! To make your braids really pop, gently tug the sides of each braid. This trick will make them appear bigger and softer.
3. Messy Low Ponytail
A messy, low ponytail looks great on any hair length! To create this look, prep hair with a texturizing spray. Spritz it few times directly into the roots. For a more textured look, tease the back of your hair with a teasing brush. Next, gather your hair into a chic low ponytail and secure. Take a small section of the hair and wrap it around the hair elastic. This step will make your ponytail elegant and sophisticated. Finish the look by teasing the tail of the ponytail.
4. Messy Side French Braid
If you’re short on time, a side French/Dutch/fishtail braid is always a cute and quick way to style your hair. This messy side braid is made even better with a few pearl hair accessories. The style is so easy to create that there’s no need for a tutorial. We love everything about this look!
5. Low Bun Updo
It’s no secret that textured, undone-looking updos are having a moment right now. And how wouldn’t they? They keep your hair off your face in a stylish way. This cute low bun is the perfect hairstyle for a summer wedding. For an ultimate boho look, update the updo with a few sprigs of baby’s breath.
6. Half Up, Half Down Top Knot
When done right, this half updo can’t be beat. To get the look, make a half-up ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Next, grab the ponytail and twist it into a little bun/knot. Secure the bun in place with a hair elastic or bobby pins. This hairstyle looks great on straight hair, as well.
7. 3-in-1 Fishtail Braids
You simply can’t go wrong with a fishtail braid hairstyle! This braided style looks way more complicated than it really is. Braid a small section of the hair into a fishtail braid on each side of your head. Pin them into place at the back of your head. Finish the style by braiding the rest of your hair into a big fishtail braid. Don’t forget to pancake the braids to make them thicker.
8. Messy Pigtails with Flowers and Braids
Yes, grown women can wear pigtails. Why not? To achieve this hairstyle, you only need a couple hair elastics, 6 minutes and it’s done! Braids are a great way to dress up the classic pigtail look. Add a flower wreath or headband to make it even more beautiful. If you don’t have the confidence to pull off this look, try a side swept ponytail instead.
9. Flower Braid Half Updo
Who knew braids could make such a cute little flower? To recreate this hairstyle, you’ll have to know how to do a waterfall braid. To make the flower, pancake the end of your waterfall braid and simply roll it until you get the form above. Secure it with bobby pins. Finish the look by curling the rest of your hair.
10. Upside Down Braid Ponytail
Combine your love for braids and ponytails with this cute hairstyle. It’s the good old high ponytail, with a twist! Flip your head upside down, take three small sections of the hair along the nape of your neck and begin to Dutch braid. Secure the braid with an elastic. Flip your head back and pull it into a high ponytail. Disguise the base of the ponytail by wrapping a one piece of hair around it.
