Still on the hunt for the perfect braided hairstyle? Were you looking for this elegant braided hairstyle that makes your heads turn? Well, we covered it! From high knots, halo braids to topknots, this season’s braided looks have an edge, but are still easy to pull off.
We’ve put together the best braided updos by Hollywood’s brightest luminaries. Get inspired and be ready for braiding!
Gorgeous Bun Braid Updos – Top 10:
1. High Bun Braid:
Ivanka Trump’s high bun, which starts at the neck as a reverse French braid and flows up to the crown in a voluminous topknot, is unique and trendy. The businesswoman has simply plaited her hair and wrapped it like a normal high bun, giving it many dimensions; and that’s just why we love it.
2. Voluminous halo braid:
The halo braid, also known as the Milkmaid braid or braided updo with a slightly ethereal feel, is the ultimate girly glamor. Partly sweet-sour and partly chic-princess, the Halo-Braid is ideal for any occasion – from work to play. Feel free to style the voluminous braids smoothly, or leave them as natural and untidy as Pixie Lott!
3. Fishtail Bun:
Kate Beckinsale’s intricate fishtail bun is simply a stunning piece of art. With many beautifully curled strands cut together in a smooth and polished fashion, the hairstyle would be suitable for casual as well as formal events.
4. Romantic Ringlets:
Lindsey Stirling’s rolled-up ringlets, accented with a loose crown trim and a messy pony, look super cute on her. This particular style calls for many waves in the hair, giving the asymmetric bun a touch of femininity and elegance.
5. Double Braid Bun:
Actress Penelope Cruz looks divine with her thick double crown braids. She wears two fabulous braids with the rest of her hair tied back to a simple thick knot. This look works wonders in every situation it’s worn, whether it’s a casual day with the girls or a formal event.
6. Side Braids:
To classify this style in a very smart way: There are a lot of twists and turns, and that’s why we love the actress Dark Angel Jessica Albas side pigtail updo. To achieve this look, braid the upper and lower halves of your hair separately, cross over them, wrap them in a not-so-loose bun, and fix them.
7. Heidi Braid:
When in doubt, take actress Poppy Delevigne, who rocks the smooth and supple Heidi / Crown braid (not to be confused with Halo Braid, as is the case with Crown braids) a bit further back than Halo braids). For the look, just create a midsection and smooth strands. Also create two side braids, wrap your head around and secure it with a few discrete hairpins. To keep your hair looking smooth, invest in a silicone-free anti-frizz spray and apply generously before styling your hair.
8. French Braid Updo:
Sometimes the most beautiful styles are the simplest – like this gorgeous French braid updo. The two matching braids of actress Sienna Miller on both sides of the head are as elaborate as they are chic.
Make sure that you do not mess with your hair too much but with a structured look, as you can see here.
9. Crown Braid with Pony:
Actress Bella Thorne looks great with her messy crown trim. Bella’s braid can be reproduced at home by braiding the same hair separately on the back. The two sections are then pulled over the ear and over the crown and secured to form a crown halo. We also love her rich, dark brown curls and delightfully soft, soft fringe – very flattering for her long face shape.
