The result is so chic, and works anywhere. Lala pulled this look off at the BET Awards, but we think it would work just as well with a white tee and flip flops. In fact, we vote this THE most versatile, easy-to-do hair trend of the summer!

Poll: Is Christina Aguilera’s Retro Updo a Hit or a Miss?
By Kate Sandoval | 06/22/2011 - 17:56
