You guys, how pretty is this braided hairstyle on January Jones?

I love the idea of wearing this on a hot summer night out. Or on the sofa on Sunday nights while watching Mad Men. Here’s my take on how to get the look:

Start by making a center part. Take a section at the hairline, divide it into three sections, and take the right section to the center.

Take the left section to the center and repeat, alternating between right and left.

Continue braiding from the sides to the back. Secure the braid with a small bobby pin.

Tuck the ends up using bobby pins. You want to keep this soft and not too tight-looking.

Repeat all of the steps on the opposite side, and you’re finished!
