A simple yet fancy hairstyle in 5 mins for the festive season, step by step tutorial

Hey everyone!

I love to do something fancy with my hair on special occasions like festivals for a change, to make the day a bit more special and feel more special. Having said that i cannot imagine to spend a lot of time getting ready because there is so much to do and for the same reason i also prefer to have my hair off my face so i need a hairstyle that looks fancy but is simple and easy to do in around 5-10 mins and keeps my hair off my face. And this one fits perfectly. Its literally the most simple yet intricate looking updo. Works for many occasions and many diff types of outfits and barely takes 7-10 mins given my long hair. So for hair not so long it can be done in around 5 and i bet after doing a couple of times u can pull it off in less than 5 mins so it can actually be your go to fancy hairstyle.

Works on- On any type hair, straight, curled or wavy and any day hair. If you can make a small bun from ur hair, this hairstyle will work for u, hair does not have to be medium length or long.

Tools- Hair brush, bobby pins, hair tie, moroccan oil or hair spray.


1- Brush your hair to make sure there are no tangles.
2- Do a side part on the front.

3- Take a small section on the major side of the part and divide it into three equal parts left right and centre and start to make a french dutch braid i.e take the left part cross it under the middle part, then take the right part cross it under the middle part. Before making the next stitch take a small section of hair from the left side and add to the part on the left and then cross it under the middle then take a small section from the right, add to the part on the right and cross it under the middle, continue braiding the same way till u reach your ears. After reaching ear level stop adding fresh sections and just do a regular dutch braid.
4- Fan out the sections of the braid to make it look more full.

5- Tie the unbraided hair in a pony tail at the middle of your head.
6- Make a bun by wrapping your hair around the base of the ponytail and secure with bobby pins.
7- Take the braid and just wrap it around the bun, tuck the end inside the bun and secure with bobby pin.

8-  Smooth out the frizz on top, if any with moroccan oil.
9-  If you feel u need more volume on top of the head just pull out some hair with the back of a comb. 
10- You are done.

If you know how to make a french dutch braid there is nothing to do in the hairstyle its literally a piece of cake. If not its a very simple 3 strand braid, if you follow point no 3 should not be a problem, if you don’t get it right the first time don’t loose heart practice a couple of times and u will be a pro, trust me. 

Hope this hairstyle becomes your go to fancy hairstyle! Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.
