This past weekend, we went to my boyfriend’s best friend’s wedding. I wanted to do something a lil’ fancy with my hair, but styling a wig or topper in an updo can sometimes be a challenge. I came up with this super quick and easy style that looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. I’m wearing my Noriko Milan here, which is a topper with a very large base, so while it can be worn up, the ponytail or bun has to be pretty low.

I created this look in a few simple steps:

1) With my hair down and the topper on as normal, I braided a small braid on both sides of my head, about 1/2 way down my hair- not a french braid (ain’t nobody got time for dat), just a normal braid. Then secured the end of each braid with a bobby pin so they wouldn’t unravel.

2) I then gathered both braids and the rest of my hair into a low ponytail and secured that with a hairband.

3) I twisted the ponytail into a bun and secured that with a few bobby pins.

4) Added a metal chain headband to add visual interest and give it a sort of Grecian vibe, pulled out a couple of wispy hairs on the side, and… voila! This look took less than 10 minutes.
