5 steps to snag Jennifer Lawrence's braided updo


 
We absolutely adore her for her kick-butt persona as Katniss from The Hunger Games, but we also have to admit that Jennifer Lawrence is always nothing but flawless when it comes to her red carpet appearances. So, naturally when we saw her hair in this to-die-for braided updo at the Golden Globes, we just had to figure out how to do it with our own locks. Luckily, Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend gave us the step-by-step. Try it out tonight, and before ya know it, Ms. Everdeen won’t be the only girl on fire…

 

Step 1: Start out by applying curling mousse to damp locks. Then, blow dry with the diffuser attachment on your hair dryer. This helps to encourage natural curls, Mark says.

Step 2: Choose random sections of your hair and mist with some hairspray before wrapping them around a ½ inch curling iron. Scrunch curls gently with your fingers.

Step 3: Starting at the top of your head, create a few loose braids on either side of your temples. Braid all the way until the end of your hair and tie off with an elastic. (It’s best to use a clear elastic so you won’t be able to see it!)

Step 4: Gather the braids and the rest of your hair at the nape of your neck and twist into a bun; pin the bun in place with as many bobby pins as you need.

 

Step 5: Spray hair with extra strong  hold hairspray to keep everything in place throughout the night, says Mark.
