#24: Elegant Updo with French Braid

There are a lot of different ways in which you can braid your hair. If you don’t know how to french braid your own hair, you shouldn’t worry, because the basics are actually really simple. For this elegant everyday style, divide your hair into two sections. Braid the right section across the back of the head towards the nape and the left ear. Then do the same with the left section, braiding to the opposite side, so that the two French braids criss cross. Pull at the parts of the braids to make them lacier. Tuck the ends of the braids at the nape underneath the updo and secure with bobby pins. Easier than it first looked, right?
