We love finding new ways to jazz up basic hairstyles, and we’re really excited about this one! Birchbox Staffer Alexz shows us how to get a braided bun updo in this tutorial.

Start by using a texturizing spray, like amika’s Un.Done Texture Spray, to give your hair some volume, then tease your hair at the roots for extra lift - we recommend using Spornette’s Little Wonder teasing brush. Flipping your head upside down, take a small section of hair along the nape of your neck and French braid 2/3 of the way up your head, securing with an elastic when finished. Flip your head back over and smooth out the top before pulling your hair into a high ponytail and securing with another elastic. Use The WRAP UP by SARAHPOTEMPA to create your bun, tucking away any loose strands with bobby pins. Finish with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray and your updo is complete!
