The return of Lauren Conrad in The Hills: That Was Then, This is Now special has been giving us ALL of the feels this weekend. On top of teaching us that boys can really suck (Spencer Pratt, Justin Bobby and Brody Jenner’s antics still haunt our dreams) and that you should NEVER say no to Paris, LC has delivered some serious hair inspo over the years. We’re major fans of her gorgeous braided updo. Super pretty with a healthy dose of Lauren’s girl next door, effortless style, it’s practically the perfect hairstyle.
Check out the video above for a step by step.
Step 1: Split your hair into two sections, roughly parted down the middle.
Step 2: Loosely braid one side of the hair down to the base of the neck and secure with a clear tie.
Step 3: Sweep together the loose hair at the end of the braid and the second section of hair into a messy low bun.
Step 4: Use bobby pins to get the shape you want for the bun and to conceal the hair tie.
Step 5: Pull out wispy bits of hair around the face and scrunch the final style a little to keep a messy feel.
Bam! You’re practically Lauren Conrad and the rest is still unwritten!
