Low braided bunWe were just as excited as the rest of the world when Kate Middleton finally wore an updo this summer.

How-to: Create a side part and smooth hair back into a ponytail at the nape of your neck. "Leave out 2-inch sections just above the ear on each side," says Zinno. "Braid these sections as well as the ponytail." You should now have three braids: one large and two smaller side braids. Gently loosen the ponytail by tugging outward on the big braid, then wrap the braided ponytail around the base, pinning as you go. Take the two side braids and criss-cross them at the base, pinning the remaining ends underneath the wrapped pony.
