The first step would be to divide your hair into three sections. With the three-strand braiding technique, braid each section individually. Starting with the middle section, wrap the braid into a circular shape and securely pin it. Take an outside section and wrap that individual braid around the pinned braid, and secure it in place. Take the last braid and wrap it around both braids, and secure the loose ends with pins that will hold.

This loop de loop updo is a bit more involved than the rest, but nothing you can’t handle. Begin by sectioning off either the left or right side of your hair and beginning the loop braid. Bring the braid across the back of the hair in which you will reach it to the other side and clip it for the time being. Once you are ready, unclip and continue braiding, bringing the second row braid lower than the first. Eventually the back of your hair will be a zig-zag of loop de loop braids. Take the loose ends and tuck them in and secure them with a pin.

There you have a loose braided updo.
