Alicia Keys Braided Updo

This hairstyle makes a statement with a big braid that circles the top of the head like a crown.

This one has a nice asymmetrical tone with the larger part of the braid being on one side and then on the other it tapers to the smaller end as it drapes across. This is a very pretty updo for any special occasion. The event here is the 2012 Billboard Music Awards!
