YouTube beauty guru Evelina Barry was inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 runway to create this romantic updo. Perfect for a wedding or formal event, this style may look complicated but it is actually surprisingly simple. You just need to know how to French braid (and a really messy French braid will totally suffice). 

What You'll Need

  • Glue
  • Bobbypins
  • Jewels
  • Fake flowers


  1. Start by cutting the fake flowers off and gluing them to the ends of your bobby pins
  2. Glue your jewels to a hair comb, and allow the glue to dry completely
  3. Next, Evelina used a curling wand to curl her hair to create texture and volume in her braid, but if you have naturally curly hair (you lucky thing!) you can skip this step
  4. French braid your hair, it's ok if this is imperfect. Messy is even better. Secure with a band.
  5. Snake the braid around and tuck in the ends, pin this until it feels secure.
  6. Add your flower and jeweled pins into your hair.
