I'm always in awe of the spectacular hairstyles Sherri Jessee creates.

Recently I rediscovered 2 beautiful braided updos she had created.

I fell in love with these 2 beautiful braided updos all over again.

These 2 beautiful braided updos are perfect for any special Holiday hairdo, wedding or even a prom.

The beauty of these 2 stunning hairstyles is they can be worn with a simple strapless gown since the hair will take center stage.

Although they work best with shoulder length or longer hair, they can be created on fusion or clip-in strands.
