Jessica Chastain's New Take On A Braid


I’m LOVING this take on a braid on Jessica Chastain at the Critics’ Choice Awards, courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora. Here’s how to get the look, per Renato.

“On wet hair, I applied Kerastase Mousse Volumactive and then blew it dry with a large round brush. It wanted the hair to be smooth and shiny.

Next I separated the hair and pulled the top section into a rubber band. I wrapped some of the hair around the band. At this point, half of the hair was up and half was down. Then I took about an inch section of hair from below each ear and brought them together. I used a very small rubber band to hold this in place.

I then created a simple loose braid in the back to keep the look soft. I secured the end with a small rubber band. I finished with Wella Finishing Hairspray.”

Thoughts on this one? I love it for a night out.
