Meet your newest go-to look from hair guru Wendy Rose Gould of Latest-Hairstyles.com. This tri-braid meets half updo not only looks like it took forever (which it didn't!), but it works for either day or night. (Read: the perfect 'do to take you from the office to happy hour.) Get the look in six simple steps, below.

The Tri-Braid Half Updo:

1. Tease the crown portion of your hair by backcombing. You can tease a lot if you want more dramatic volume. If you prefer a more subtle lift, tease less.

Finally, take a section of hair (not from the ponytail) and braid it. Wrap this tightly around the braid as many times as possible. This ends up creating a knot-like effect. It also makes it look like you have one cohesive braid instead of three.
