This week we are showing a simplified variation of one of our favorite hairstyles that we posted a few years ago, the "swirling braids updo." And although the original hairstyle is gorgeous, it is a little more time consuming. Today we wanted to show a super quick and easy (but still elegant and pretty) updo for those occasions when you don't have a lot of time, but still want to look polished, sophisticated, or fancy. This has been our "go to" style for many occasions (since it is so quick and easy) and would be great for the upcoming holiday season: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc. I could also see this working for Prom, Homecoming, Weddings, church, recitals, communions and other special occasions. If you know how to French braid, this hairstyle should be very easy for you and not take more than a few minutes to create!

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 1 clear elastic or hair tie.
- Several bobby pins.
- Topsy tail. We purchased ours online (the brand is Conair.)
This up-style should work on long hair and medium hair. In the video tutorial (above) we show a few ideas to alter the style for the length of hair you are working with.
