Like It Or Leave It: Kristen Stewart’s Braided ‘Do At Snow White & The Huntsman Premiere
Thu, 21 June 2012 4:38PM
Admittedly, I’ve never been a die-hard Twilight fan, but character and film choices aside, I salute Kristen Stewart for staying true to her individual style. I love that she isn’t afraid to wear converse sneakers with a frock (gasp!) and hasn’t been sucked into the Fake Tan and False Lashes Vortex that seems to have consumed most of her Hollywood peers.
Which brings me to my next topic: KS’s wispy-looking braided up ‘do at the Snow White and the Huntsman premiere the other night in Sydney’s Bondi Junction.
Now, while it looks a tad messy from the front, if you look closely, you’ll see there’s a lot of magic happening in the back in the form of a loose braid. In fact, if I were to instruct you on how to create the look yourself, I’d suggest you start by teasing the hair all over before sectioning it into two at the ear level. Then, all you need to do is start the braid working from the nape of the neck, up towards the crown. The beauty of this look is that you want the braid to be relaxed and soft, so ditch the tail comb and use your fingers to select pieces to pull into the braid. Once you’re finished with the braid, all you need to do then is pull the front section back toward the crown, joining it to the tail end of the braid to form a messy bun. Are you with me?
Now, personally, although I wouldn’t swap the braid for anything, as a fellow brunette, I think KS could have benefited from a subtle side part (not too dissimilar from the style the model’s sported at the Whitney Eve show back at MBFA 2012) to create more definition at the front.
Enter Model at Whitney Eve Show…
Over to you now…
Are you keen to try the back braid?
