Birchbox staffer Candice has weddings nearly every weekend this month and her search for a polished style that wasn’t too stiff or reminiscent of her prom pictures came up short. Today she’s sharing a braided hairstyle for medium-length hair that’s easy enough to do yourself in a few minutes and sophisticated enough for any of your big evening events.
Whether you need an easy wedding updo or a pretty way to keep your hair up, this boho-chic hairstyle should do the trick. All it takes is three simple braids, some bobby pins, elastics, and of course, Number 4 Non Aerosol Hair Spray. And while it’s lovely on its own, don’t be afraid to twist it to your taste—you can add pretty hair clips or other embellishments to make it your own.
