Soft Braided Updo

Soft Braided Updo

This Soft Braided Updo is done a little more intricately than my usual hairstyles. By that I mean it’s broken down into a few extra steps by creating and wrapping a number of different braids to strategically overlap one another. It would be a beautiful hairstyle to wear on a number of special occasions, whether it be for a school dance, a wedding, graduation, birthday, anniversary, or just a fun night out.

I think this Braided Updo Tutorial style could be done just as easily with less braiding and wrapping but it was fun for me to stretch my abilities a little bit and create this pretty hairstyle that I literally can’t wait to recreate and wear again. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the process of creating it after you’ve watched the tutorial of Soft Braided Updo.

Soft Braided Updo Instruction:

Soft Braided Updo Step 1:

Begin by sectioning off the front section of hair along the hairline. Draw a line from the part down to the left ear and down to the right ear and clip off the front section of hair at the top of the head.

Step 2:

Create a second section directly behind the first, from the part down to the left side of the nape of the neck and place this section over the left shoulder.

Now create a similar section on the right side.

Step 4:

With the remaining hair at the back of the head, divide it into a top and bottom section, with the top section slightly smaller, and clip the top piece out of the way.

Combine the bottom section into a low ponytail near the nape of the neck with a clear elastic band.

Step 6:

Let down the section of hair clipped away directly above the ponytail.

Soft Braided Updo Step 7:

Smooth out the section with a comb and then gently twist it together, placing the twist on top of the elastic band of the ponytail.

Step 8:

Slide two bobby pins into the twist creating an “X” shape to hold it in place.

Soft Braided Updo Step 9:

Take this section of hair now laying over the ponytail, combine it with the hair from the ponytail, and braid it together into a regular three-strand braid. Tie off the end with a clear elastic band.

Step 10:

Wrap the braid clock-wise, over the bobby pins and clear elastic from the ponytail, and into a bun. Secure the edges with 2-3 bobby pins.

Take the hair over the left shoulder and divide it into two sections. Braid the back-most section into a three-strand braid and wrap it clock-wise over the top of the bun, securing it in place.

Step 12:

With the hair over the right shoulder, divide it into two sections and braid the back-most section. Wrap it clock-wise around the bun as well and pin it in place.

Soft Braided Updo Step 13:

Now take the remaining hair, over the right shoulder, braid it, and wrap it counter-clockwise over the bun, securing it with bobby pins.

Step 14:

Braid the remaining section, hanging over the left shoulder, and wrap it clock-wise over the bun, pinning it in place.

Soft Braided Updo Step 15:

Now let down the hair clipped at the top of the head, the hair along the entire hairline, and part the hair where you normally part it. I part mine in a deep side part on the right.

Step 16:

Braid the hair on the right side into a regular three-strand braid, wrap it over the bun in a counter-clockwise motion, and secure it with bobby pins.

Soft Braided Updo Step 17:

Wrap the very last section of hair, on the left side, into a braid, wrapping it clock-wise over the bun and securing it with a few bobby pins.

Step 18:

Spray the Soft Braided Updo style with a maximum-hold hairspray and smooth down any loose hairs with your finger tips.
