How-To: Braided Updo

Love is in the hair! Summer is wedding season and the prime time to exercise those styling skills! If you’re in need of a little hair-spiration for an upcoming appointment, check out this gorgeous bridal braid by PRAVANA Guest Artist Lara C. Kay!
To get the look, Lara used a combination of Fishtail and Dutch braids to frame the face then backcombed and used tuck and roll techniques for the back to create this elegant look. She used a combination of PRAVANA’s Super Shape and PRAVANA Super Shape EXTREME hair sprays to keep the hair secure. These are must-haves for brides on their big days! Super Shape EXTREME has hurricane-proof hold that lasts up to 127 hours, withstanding teary ceremonies, windy car rides, photos with the family and grooving on the dance floor all night long!
