Seen at London Fashion Week at the Kristian Aadnevik Spring/Summer 2016 show, this braided updo can be easily transformed into an everyday look. Get the step by step below.

Braided updos are here to stay! The trendy style works for fall and spring, and has been spotted on the runway, as well as on some of our favorite stars like Charlize Theron and Bella Thorne. Get expert tips on how to create this look right here.

Antonio Corral Calero, Global Moroccanoil Ambassador, spoke about the inspiration for the look: “The feminine and whimsical hairstyle draws inspiration from the English garden. The look is designed to complement the soft tones and light fabrics of the Aadnevik’s collection; even with intricate amounts of detail, it’s also achievable at home.”

Braided Updo — Get The Romantic Look Seen At London Fashion Week

Get the look:

“Prepare damp hair with Moroccanoil Treatment Light and Moroccanoil Root Boost from roots to ends, to build texture. Blow dry hair with fingers and then create a natural center part.

Beginning on the right side of the head, create an inwards braid that moves from the center parting, along the hairline and towards the ear. Tousle hair as you braid for a textured effect and ensure side burns are left loose.

Begin a second braid in the same fashion, following the same direction, above the first. Secure the braids at the center back of the head by knotting hair 4-5 times, leaving ends hanging loose.

The look is asymmetric, so the left-hand side of the head introduces an additional step; there are now three braids to create. Follow the same pattern as above.

To create a matte, naturally texturized finish, gently tug the braids and knots. This reflects the playfulness and free-spirited nature of the style.”
