If you’re not a basic ponytail type of girl, adding a few braids to your updo or top knot can be the icing on the cake. Adding braids to your simple updo is the most flattering way to give your look a little added style regardless of the ocassion. For the everyday look, messy texture is always a great idea because it’s easy, quick, and always looks cute. When you are in hurry in the morning, we love rope or twisted braids tied with a low bun. For a formal occasion like a wedding or business event, add some volume and texture to your braids. Check out 50 of our favorite braided updos for every occasion.
