Here at Byrdie, we're total suckers for a good braid. Whether it's a low side braid, a braided bun, a crown braid, etc., we tend to get a little weak in the knees for the twisted style (maybe it's a beauty editor thing). However, we have a feeling you'll feel the same way about the Grecian side braid Kate Bosworth wore Tuesday night at the SAG Foundation’s conversation on The Art of More. I mean, just look at it!
Hairstylist Bridget Brager says of the look, "We wanted to do a 'cool girl' braid, something a bit different but not too flashy."
To achieve this simply beautiful style, Brager says, she started by giving Bosworth a "bedhead look." To do this, she spritzed on some Sachajuan Ocean Mist ($31), gave the strands a rough blow-dry, and curled the hair with the T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand ($270). For the braid, Brager created a deep side part and Dutch-braided the hair down one side of Bosworth's head, right along the hairline. She continued the braid behind the ear and wrapped it around the nape of the neck, securing the braid with a bobby pin. Finally, Brager finished off the look by applying some Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumising Powder ($30) to the braid and pulled it apart for a "lived-in feel." We're officially obsessed.
