Braided Romantic Twist
This is one our favorite chic updos, and it’s seriously so easy! Section of your hair into a half updo; Brush back the top half of your hair and tie it off into a clear elastic. Create a hole with your fingers right above the clear elastic, and loop the pony through the hole.
With your remaining hair, section them off into two and braid each section. Take one braid and bring it pin it to the opposite side; Repeat the same for the next braid. Voila! Your updo is complete.

Boho Braid Crown
Braid crowns are the ideal updos for the boho babe who dreads wearing her hair up. All you need to recreate this look is basic braiding skills and a couple bobby pins. Create a straight center part, and braid your hair into pigtails on each side. Leave the braids thick and a little loose to create a more romantic boho vibe. Wrap each braid around your head, securing the braid into place with bobby pins that match your hair color as you go.
