When the weekend rolls around I always find myself with a bit more time on my hands to experiment a little more in the beauty department. My usual wash and air dry routine gets elevated a bit and I have more interest in busting out my flat iron or curling iron to do something a bit more playful. This summer my hair has gotten quite long (the longest it’s been in years actually!), so I am loving easy and pretty updos. Braids, top knots, ponytails – I’m loving ‘em all! These looks are perfect for running errands, brunch dates or even just hanging out around home. Why not try a pretty little updo this weekend?

Braided Top Knot 2 of 5A big top knot is always an awesome look. Add a braided twist and it's even prettier!
