A Braided Updo You Can Do in Ten Minutes or Less
Spring and summer events (read: weddings) always pose some hair conundrums for me. I want to look polished, but don’t have the time (or skill, frankly) to master some elaborate style. I’d rather be celebrating!

The finished product looks like you’ve gotten your hair done professionally, but it takes less than ten minutes to achieve. If you can do a basic three-strand braid, you can do this. And if you’re so inclined, you can also add your own twist with fishtail braids, a four strand braid, etc. The the sky’s the limit. Watch below:

The 66th Cannes Film Festival
For more photos from the Cannes Film Festival, keep an eye on the #cannes2013 hashtag and the location pages for 2013 Festival de Cannes, Cannes Red Carpet and the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.
Today marks the rainy beginning of the 66th Festival de Cannes, one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. Over the next ten days, nearly 100 films of all genres will be screened throughout the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès for the invite-only attendees, but only twenty are considered “In Competition” for the coveted Palme D’Or awarded to the director of the best feature film of the competition.
As celebrities and industry luminaries arrive to the waterfront red carpet by yacht and explore the festival, follow along on Instagram with these confirmed attendees.
