29. Casual Braided Bun

Casual updos for long hair are a must-learn skill. Summertime can be brutal for long hair, with sun and water damage paired with the overall discomfort of lugging around a full head of hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of casual updos that are fun to experiment with and are sure to look good on the beach, at a summer concert or even at the office.

Long hair is most beautiful in curly downdos and all kinds of updos. Present-day casual updos embrace a few different elements in one hairstyle – braids and buns, twists and braids, messy texture and cool accents… Well, today’s casual hairstyle is never boring!

Of course, when you think of casual updos, you picture a simple bun or ponytail. Unless you’re a hair guru, it is completely understandable that you aren’t versed in the different variations of the more classic styles. Adding a braid to your bun can dress it down, creating a cute everyday look for you. Letting a few wisps of hair fly free gives this style a carefree feel.
