20. Merged Braids

Formal occasions are so much fun – from prom and wedding to work holiday parties. Whatever the reason for getting fancy, you’ll want hair that’s as flattering and exquisite as your dress and accessories. If you’re feeling a lack of inspiration, check out the list below for some great ideas that are simple enough for novices.

Today’s formal updos fall into 2 categories. The first category embrases traditional sleek updos and the other one includes loose curly updos that look absolutely natural and carefree.

Section off the top portion of your hair and make fishtail braids. Then, crossing the braids over one another, and adding the freely hanging strands, bring them up to the top of the head. Pin where hair needs to be secured and let some front strands flow free.
