Born in 1973, Li Bing Bing, one of China’s most successful A-list actresses has turned 40 this Feburary.

In a scene of American film “Snowflower and the Secret Fan”, actress Li Bing Bing had to become a highschool student along with 1981-born korean costar Jeon Ji Hyun. It is difficult to tell Li’s true age with her radiant, youthful face and beautiful smile that is comparable to Jeon.

Braided Half Updo with Oomph

The other day, I was looking at how many of each category I’ve done and I realised I had a hair tutorial I didn’t post 😀 This will spice up typical braided looks and it works best on 2nd day hair because it will hold hair a bit better.

Here’s how to get the braided half-updo look:

Start with french braiding your hair from your bangs (loosely) until you reach the tip of your ears.

Lightly tilt your braid towards the back so we can wrap it around to the left side of the head.

Merge your RIGHT braid to a new braid that you’d start the same way from your LEFT side.

Pin your braids at the beginning of the merge to secure the braids.

Use a rattail comb end to give lift and volume to your crown.

This hairdo looks elegant and exudes prim and proper, and it is perfect for going out with your buds or to a date.

GL with the hairdo and have fun!!

2 Minute Hair Updo for Lazy Days

For many more hair tutorials, find them at my beauty-dedicated blog, UG Beauty!

This simple, messy side bun takes less than 2 minutes and requires no hairties. It’s a perfect updo for lazy mornings and a quick (but put-together look) for school.

Having tried all sorts of hairstyles, I love that this is the best updo for natural hair textures and flatters any face shape.

2 minute school updo

If you are in the process of growing out your bangs, this hairstyle is also perfect for you. Note that (4) I pinned my bangs upwards at the side near the bun and (5) pinned my bangs behind the ears on the other side to avoid a totally symmetrical look.
