Grecian braided updo

Kim Kardashian shows how the combination of wavy hair and thick braids can create an elegant, textured updo. Here’s how to get the look:

1. Apply a large dollop of volumizing mousse to damp hair for extra body. Blow dry using a diffuser to bring out your natural waves.

2. Put some styling gel on your fingers and rake your waves back into a half updo. Loosely French braid the top half of your hair until you reach the back of your head.

3. Gather up the rest of your hair and twist it into a tight bun. Tug at the braid to loosen it up a bit, and use bobby pins to secure any pieces of hair that might’ve fallen out.

4. Mist your updo with strong-hold hairspray to finish.
