Zig Zag Your Way to a Chic Updo


Braids are often associated with casual, summertime looks, but this braided updo is all grown up. Alena Herwehe of Joico’s Team created this super polished style that’s perfect for a night out or even a day at the office.




To create this style, you’ll need:


Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax - Lightly spray the wax throughout dry hair before you begin styling. It will add texture and a workable hold, creating a great base to work from.

A small, clear elastic hair tie: Use this to secure the end of your braid.

Bobby Pins - Keep a few of these nearby to help keep the end of the braid tucked into the updo.

Joico JoiMist Medium Styling and Finishing Spray - Save this medium-hold hairspray for the end and use it to lock in your look.

The front view of the final look is very polished. It’s a great style to try if you have bangs. Don’t have bangs? The final style will be sleek and chic when viewed from the front.
