Chrissy Teigen’s intricate braid from the 2016 Academy Awards made major waves online, and fans wanted to know how to recreate the beautiful look from the red carpet. Hairstylist Christian Wood was the mastermind behind the style, which starts out with a series of cascading braids and comes together into one single deconstructed braid. This beautiful look was created using drugstore brand Tresemmé.

If braids are not your hairstyle of choice, why not try a look inspired by Emma Stones’s double bun and side swept fringe, which she wore to the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. One bun is chic and sophisticated, but two are even better! Hairstylist Mara Roszak got creative with this double bun, which was created by separating hair above and below the tips of the ears, swirling it, and pinning it in place.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are ❤️

For a hairstyle idea just as chic, but without the time and effort, keep your hair down and accessorize it with something similar to Hailey Baldwin’s Headband. The model wore this stunning creation covered in crystals and flowers to Dolce and Gabbana’s spring 2017 show.
