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.
