The key to a great updo can sometimes lie in its simplicity. In this tutorial, Hair and Makeup Artist Sherri Jessee created a soft sweeping style. It is the perfect style to wear day or night, to a fancy affair or to a casual engagement. Follow along below to see exactly how she got the style!

STEP 1. Begin with a deep part on the right side and create a 3 strand Dutch braid.

STEP 2. Continue the braid across the front and tie off the end with a tiny elastic.

STEP 3. Gently pull out the braid to make it appear larger.

STEP 4. On the left side twist 2 strands of hair and continue around to the back.

STEP 5. Ponytail the hair together low on the nape on the right side.

STEP 6. Slide a bun pad donut over the ponytail and pin to secure.
