Today, I’ll show you how to create the beautiful bridesmaid updo pictured above.



Put your hair in two ponytails, sectioning your hair from behind the ears so that you have a top ponytail and a bottom ponytail.  Make sure that the ponytails are right next to each other and split them in half like the picture above.  Then, you’ll have four sections to braid.



Next, braid each section.  You could do all regular braids, or mix it up.  I chose to do two regular braids, a twist braid, and a fishtail braid.  After you are done braiding each section, secure them with a clip and pull on the sides to create volume.



Finally, you’ll one braid and wrap it around pinning in place with bobby pins.  Then, you’ll take the next braid and wrap it around going the opposite way.  And continue these steps with the next two braids.  One you are finished pinning everything in place, spray generously with hairspray.


This hairstyle would go well with any formal bridesmaid dress, but especially dresses with a high neckline.
