Get the look: Easy Messy Braid Updo

Easy Messy Braid Updo I just love braiding my hair as it’s such a great and easy style to create with bob hair. This is one of my favourite looks I have done so far and it was easy to do, fun to create and it really looks absolutely gorgeous. Here is a look at my Easy Messy Braid Updo.

I have very curly hair and I don’t always have time to straighten or even neaten it before heading out. For those days an updo really comes in handy and I want to share this Easy Messy Braid Updo with you today.

This look is really great for those days that you simply cannot tame your hair, so here is how to create this stylish updo:

Step 1 – Start by tying your hair back into a low bun. For this look make sure that your hair isn’t tied too tight. Once your hair is tied into a bun, gently tug on the sides so that you get a looser updo look. Another important thing to do is to keep a piece of your hair loose at the front for your braid.

Step 2 – Next you will take the hair you put aside and create a normal braid. The whole idea of this look is to create a messy look so start tugging at your braid and make it messy.

Step 3 – Now simply pin your braid back using some bobby pins.

Step 4 – For the last step take a few loose strands of hair next to your face (or pull a few out) and create soft curls. This will really complete your look and the curls look gorgeous with your messy braid.
