Pro tip: curl & hairspray your hair prior to styling to give the updo more support
Going to homecoming?! School has started and that means dances! With Homecoming right around the corner I’d thought it’d be great to share a fun formal hairstyle that would be perfect for the occasion.
This style is actually a lot easier to do than it looks so I hope you love it. If you’re going to homecoming this year and loved this hairstyle then be sure to leave a comment down below and let me know!
Double Lace Braids Updo Instructions:
- Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair where you normally prefer; I’m placing mine on the far right side.
- Step 2 / Divide off a section of hair at the crown, lay the left side over the right and pin it against the head with several bobby pins.
- Step 3 / Now divide the remaining hair into three sections, a left side, right side and a back section.
- Step 4 / Tie the back section into a low ponytail with a clear elastic band and braid it into three strand braid, securing the end with another elastic.
- Step 5 / Pull on the edges of the braid to make it fuller and then wrap it into a bun around the top elastic.
- Step 6 / Slide bobby pins arounds the edges to secure it against the head.
- Step 7 / Now braid the left section of hair into a lace braid bringing in hair along the hairline and working back towards the bun.
- Step 8 / When the last section of hair is brought in, cross the braid over the top of the bun and pin it against the head with a few bobby pins.
- Step 9 / Go back and fan out the braid by pulling slightly on the edges to make it fuller.
- Step 10 / Now create a second lace braid with the section on the right side; crossing the side strands over the middle and bringing in hair along the hair line until reaching the bun at the back.
- Step 11 / Lay the braid over the top of the bun and slide several bobby pins into the braid to pin it against the head.
- Step 12 / Take the ends from the braids and create small loops at the top of the bun and pin them in place with bobby pins.
