Braided Updo

How to:
1) Part hair down the middle and across from ear to ear.
2) Braid or french braid the two front sections and secure each with a hair tie.
3) Divide the back into three sections and braid each one securing with a hair tie. Slightly pull and loosen the braids for a softer look.
4) Form each back braid into a bun and secure with bobby pins.

5) Pull back the front braids and pin the ends underneath the braided buns.
