French lace Braid Updo
I love how this French lace Braid Updo has a gorgeous braid wrapping around it. If you are new to braiding then it can be a little trickier to do. It’s actually a french braid and lace braid combined together, wrapped around a chic bun. I think it’s the perfect style for any special occasion.
