5 steps to snag Jennifer Lawrence's braided updo
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.
