Hair Trend Spotting: Messy Braided Ponytails

Hair Trend Spotting Messy Braided Ponytails

Keeping your locks under control in the humid weather has never been easy; however, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell found the perfect solution for their red carpet looks at the Teen Choice Awards: braided ponytails.

Last year braids were worn as tight and as sleek as possible, whereas this spring braids are going to be the complete opposite as this trend is more laidback and relaxed, reliving the romantic medieval style.

Opting for long, chunky, messy and romantic braids shows a much more youthful approach to a classic updo.

Other stars who have championed the messy, romantic braid this year, during Cannes, include Blake Lively and Eva Longoria.

Here’s how to create the look.

Create a side part and add texture with a wide-barrel curling iron, making sure to curl from the top. Lightly tease hair at the crown, then split your hair into two sections.

Keeping your hair on the side of the part, begin to braid by pulling a bit of hair from the outside of one section over to the centre of the other section, then repeat for the other side and continue until your braid is the desired length.

Once you’ve reached the bottom, fasten the braid with an elastic. Loosen the braid by lightly tugging on outer sections throughout.

Lucy Hale In Christian Dior – 2014 Teen Choice Awards

Lucy Hale In Christian Dior - 2014 Teen Choice Awards

Lucy Hale attended the 2014 Teen Choice Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (August 10) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Dior fit-and-flare dress sculpted from vibrant red duchess satin with a lustrous sheen and a plunging neckline.

I can’t say her Brian Atwood ‘Abell’ sandals are my favourite, but they do punch up this sweet offering, which was also accessorized with a MICHAEL Michael Kors clutch, and a selection of jewels from EF Collection, Dana Rebecca Designs, Graziela Gems and Melinda Maria.

A braided ponytail with face-framing tendrils completed her fiery look.

Lucy Hale In Dsquared² – The Grand Ole Opry

Lucy Hale In Dsquared² -  The Grand Ole Opry

Lucy Hale performed at The Grand Ole Opry on Saturday (June 21) in Nashville, Tennessee.

With hot pants the preferred performance attire for the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Rita Ora, JLo, and of course Miley, it’s nice to see an artist focus on her music.

Not going the nearly naked route, Lucy wore a Dsquared² Spring 2014 white leather sleeveless dress with a tiered scalloped perforated skirt.

I much prefer Lucy’s tonal look over the tri-colour look which took the runway. The runway version is too busy for my liking.

Lucy styled her ’50s-style frock with gold Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a Dionea Orcini ring.

The stars of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ celebrated 100 episodes of the show at W Hollywood on Saturday (May 31) in Hollywood, California.

Lucy Hale: The actress looked very pretty wearing a Tanya Taylor printed crop top and pencil skirt styled with maroon sandals. I would’ve loved this to have been more summery, but it’s a cute look nonetheless.

Shay Mitchell: Always on hand to bring out the va-va-voom, the actress donned a sexy Cushnie et Ochs LBD with signature cuts, which she styled with nude Manolo Blahnik pumps. You may remember that Jennifer Lopez has also worn this dress, as has Rocsi Diaz.
