How-To: Relaxed Updo


You can make this style as tight or as loose as you want, depending on the feel and the look you’re going for. Prep the hair by micro crimping every other section and then curling. Watch our video to see more detail.

1. 2 inches from the hairline, braid a halo on the parietal ridge to the center back on each side. Secure with elastic. Repeat the same technique on the occipital ridge.

2. Interlock hair underneath the occipital braid and lay against the braid. Anchor it down with a piece of hair. Repeat and loosen up as needed.
