Braided Bun Updo | Clemence Poesy

Give Your Topknot Some Edge With Mini Braids

If the typical ballerina topknot is a little too ordinary for your taste, why not do like Clémence Poésy? The actress arrived at the Chanel Haute Couture show yesterday sporting a bun that was high on texture. Sweeping her strands up high off her neck, Clémence punched up the typical twist by adding an unexpected element to her hair: mini braids that peeked out along her scalp.

To achieve the look, spritz down your fingertips with hair spray and sweep your hair back off your face. Add a few loose braids along your scalp before finger-brushing your hair into a ponytail and securing it with an elastic. Working in half-inch sections, coil your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure with hairpins until all of the hair in the ponytail is pinned up. Finish with another mist of hair spray and a punchy pink lip, like Estée Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Magnetic Magenta ($25).
