CC Beauty Live: Braided Half Updo


As you all know, I love braids.  I’ll put them into any hairstyle I can, and this look has been my go-to for summer parties.  It’s super easy and looks great whether your hair is straight, curly, wavy…whatever!  It’s especially great for those days when you haven’t washed your hair.  (Trust me, it’s cool, I haven’t either.)

This looks like it’d be complicated, and my friends are always all “OMG how did you do that?”  Seriously it takes three minutes and like five bobby pins #winning.  Now I’m passing on my hair guru wisdom to you.  There are a couple of things you can do with this look, too.  You can leave it half up (or half down if you’re a pessimist).  You can pull it into a low ponytail or bun.  You can pull it into a high ponytail or bun.  You can braid the rest and have a braid orgy.

Really the choice is yours.

On my face: Smashbox Anti-Shine, Make Up For Ever Primer (Green), Maybelline FIT Powder in 230
