Voluminous Braided Updo for the Holidays!


I think this is a great, current, take on a bohemian updo. Super messy updos have been on their way out for a long time, but bohemian is still doable with some changes! Staying away from the typical “bumped” updo, and exaggerating the volume in the bun while adding some braids for a more earthy vibe is a great way to go!


What I’m wearing:

  • Lips: In black dress: Lime Crime Glamour 101, in blue shirt: Revlon Rose Wine
  • Shirt: Jcrew
  • Dress: Baukjen

Thanks for watching!

  1. I love it love it love it!!! Sooo trying ur(:

  2. LOVE this look, Kayley! Gorgeous! Did you add any product to your hair before you started?

  3. Hey Kayley! I don't know if I've missed it in previous videos but my question is this. How do you keep your hair from falling out of bobby pins? I feel that no matter how I "net" the pins together or how many I criss-cross, my hair ends up…heavy(?) and falls out. I also feel that when I twist my hair and try to pin it has the same problem and I also can't get the pins close enough to my head. Do you have any tricks as to how to apply pins securely? It may be that there is not enough texture to my hair or something but I need help either way! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!ย

  4. Your hair looks a lot thicker in your last couple videos. Are you using extensions, or is it a hair-care trick? If the latter, please share!

  5. You are so talented ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Ooooh, almost my favorite hairstyle you've EVER posted, which is saying a lot! I love it because it looks like you tried really hard but it's really not too difficult. Thank you Kayley!

  7. we've missed the bohemian braid tutorials too!! Please do more of your old styles. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I absolutely adore this! ๐Ÿ™‚ What a simple, sweet idea. Definitely going to try this out very soon.ย 

  9. You said you weren't certain on whether or not you needed to curl the hair before braiding and twisting, You Do. I've done it both ways, and when I curled my hair, the updo looked a lot better. (also, use when you plan on washing your hair the next day, my hair had some pretty interesting texture that made it difficult to style after sleeping on it)

  10. Love this hairstyle! I have one question though…Where is your wedding ring!!!??? I miss seeing it!

  11. I am soo glad i found your channel. I do a different hairstyle in school everyday but i was staring to run out and then i met your channel and dude!!! it made my day:)

  12. Very pretty and sounds simple ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I love this hairstyle!!! I'm running to my bathroom right now to practice ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. love this!!! just cut my hair short so cant do anymore long hairstyles! missed this one and its one of my faves!!!ย 

  15. Long long long time fan, first time commenter!
    I love all of your videos especially braided updo's like these. I always get a lot of compliments on my hair and everything I know and do, I have learned from you. And I love that I am not the only philosophy student who is obsessed with hair :p.
    I myself have long hair but a lot of my friends don't. Whenever I tell them they could still do these updo's, they don't believe me. Maybe you could do a video where you revisit some of your favourite updo's and braids and show them on a model with short or shoulderlength hair. I think that would be very interesting!

  16. Love the boho hairstyles they are my favorite. Keep them coming please. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Perfect style for girls with long hair! Often I can't do wear hair tutorial styles on YouTube because my hair is so long, and the styles meant for medium long hair end up looking silly on me.Great job catering to longer haired girls!
