Learn how to do this elegant wrap-around braid updo that you can wear for any occasion!

Start by sectioning off the top third of your hair and clip it up. Pull the rest in a low ponytail positioned slightly to the side.

Slip the ponytail through a donut or rolled up sock. Spread hair evenly around the donut and secure with elastic and bobby pins.

In case your hair is long, braid the remaining hair with the three-strand technique and wrap around the base of the bun.

Go back to the top section, brush it out and start a braid on the side of the head close to the hair line. Divide hair intro three equal sections and bring the left strand, than the right down the center.

Place the left strand again to the center, then each time you get the the right strand pick up and add a piece of hair to the braid.

Continue the pattern until you run out of hair, finish with three-strand braiding and secure the ends.
