Calling all curly-haired girls this summer: beat the frizz with a cute updo that will cool you down for any occasion. Whether it’s a festival, a day-time wedding, or even a date, this curly hair updo will look great for any occasion. Check out our tutorial for a simple curly-hair do.

You’ll need the following:


2 clear elastics
2 bobby pins
Hair accessories like a floral headband or hair pins with pearls or crystals (optional)

Now follow these simple steps:

Step 1. Part the hair in half. If your hair is freshly washed and dried, add some frizz control cream or oil to keep the little hairs in place. If you have second day hair or older, you won’t need any product. This updo works better on hair that hasn’t been washed as it stays in place better.

Step 2. Create a loose French braid starting around the temples of your head. If you’re hair isn’t as curly, take some strands of hair out around this area for a more romantic or laid back feel. Secure with a clear elastic and repeat this step on the other side.

Step 3. Take the end of one of the braids and tuck it under the other braid, around the middle of the head. Secure it with a bobby pin and repeat with the other braid.

Step 4. This step is optional. Add a floral crown or some cute pins with pearls to finish the hairdo.
