La La Anthony wore her hair in an adorable updo at the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul. The style incorporated a reverse French braid running from the front hairline along the top of her head and ending in a large loose bun.

To recreate La La's look, begin by sectioning out three small pieces of hair at the middle of the front hair line. Start the French braiding process, drawing hair in and pulling each new section under, instead of over, to create the reverse effect.

Once you've reached the back of the crown, pull up all of the hair and secure in a tight high ponytail. To create the voluminous bun, backcomb the ponytail, twist, and wrap loosely around the base, tucking ends back into the hair elastic. Use u-shaped hair pins to secure the bun, or try Goody Spin Pins to keep tresses in place. To finish, mist with a bit of hairspray.
