Hair DIY: Braided Side Bun

Kacee Geoffroy is back with another genius way to do your hair for all those summer events on your calendar!  When it’s hot out, we know the last thing you want is to have your hair sticking to your neck and causing unnecessary sweating.  That’s why we love a good updo, especially for wedding season!  This braided side bun is perfect to put it all up while still keeping it chic for that work event, bridal shower, or even just date night!  (You could even add a cute headband or flower crown!) Kacee has broken it down so that you can recreate this cute updo in six simple steps!
