Ever since Martha Lynn shared this hair style with us, it’s been our go-to look for fabulous hair on the fly. Safe to say this updo is one of the easiest we’ve featured in our Pretty Simple series — if you can braid, you can achieve these ornate buns in minutes. And worry not, this romantic do suits nearly everyone (even if you don’t have Claire’s long locks). I have to warn you though: once you try these braided buns, you just might (actually… most definitely will) get hooked. Keep reading for the tutorial!

  1. Section hair into three vertical sections and pull back section into a ponytail.
  2. Braid ponytail and secure at the end.
  3. Tie braid in a knot and tuck the tail behind the knot. Secure with a bobby pin.
  4. Braid side section and secure at the end.
  5. Pull braid towards the back bun and tie in a knot. Again, tuck the tail behind the bun and secure with bobby pins.
  6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 with final section and spray all over.
