It’s spring which means everyone is going to start wearing their hair in braids again. Some people might have been rocking massive Queen Elsa-like braids in the winter but everyone and their mother are going to be wearing braids now that the weather is slowly getting warmer. Amanda Seyfried attended the While We’re Young premiere in New York and gave us some braid inspiration.
Amanda wore her hair in super tight french braids. Her hair was parted in the center and each side was braided back. The ends were then twisted into loose buns and pinned in place. Amanda’s hairstyle is so much better than your usual side braid. Her look probably caused a fair bit of scalp pain but it was very cool. It is also a surprisingly edgy look for Amanda. Check out the braids from the side:
Amanda’s braided hairstyle contrasted her flowy heart print dress. She could have gone with a really feminine look with red lipstick and a shiny Kate Middleton blow-dry, but the braids give her outfit a different vibe.
For her makeup, Amanda focused on her eyes with a bit of dusty mauve and black shadow. She kept the rest of her face natural with a neutral lip gloss and blush.
Are you tempted to ditch your go-to side braid and try a version of french braids? If you’re attending any festivals, this is a good braid-your-hair-and-forget-about-it-for-the-weekend look. You might want to get a friend to help you braid the back of your head.
