For the 2015 Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held on 15th January in L.A, Jessica Chastain sported an on trend loose braid. To create the style, inspiration was taken from her beautiful dress which featured a high neckline. In order to show off the pretty neckline Jessica’s hair was pulled back off her face into the braid which cascaded down her back. This modern style really complimented her whole look.
We have already shared with you that braids are a big trend that seems to be sticking around for a while. The great thing about this style is that it is versatile as you can wear it for a day at the office and it will take you straight to the cocktail bar!
Here’s how to get the look
Wash your hair using volumising shampoo and make sure that you condition well, thoroughly rinsing your hair off.
Towel dry as much of the wetness of your hair as you can before applying mousse to provide hair with extra volume and texture. Now it is ready to be blow dried using a large round brush with the aim of getting hair as smooth and shiny as possible.
Next, separate off the top section of your hair and secure it in place with a hair band. Wrap a small section of hair round the band to conceal it. Now half of your hair should be up and the other half down.
Take around a one inch section of hair from just under each ear and bring them together fixing in place with another small hair band.
Now you are ready to create a simple, loose braid running down the back. Again secure this with a hair band. You can use clear bands so that they are hidden as much as possible. To finish off mist over hair with some light hold hairspray.
