Best braided updo for summer

If the ‘simple look’ is not your style, then this contemporary mix may be just what you’re looking for!

In an eye-catching, urban look Gwen’s hair is a pale blonde shade, with platinum blonde balayage accents at the side and the nape.

Two shiny braids adorn the side of the head creating a double line around to the back.  The top has been combed back and fastened in a spiky, casual knot just behind the crown.

The centre of the back has three spiky knots in a vertical row, for a punk take on the messy chignon style.  The result is a contrast between the smoothly braided plaits and the loose textured spiky wisps that make this blonde look more spice, than sugar!
