Hailee Steinfeld looks totally adorable with her long side braid! We love this look so much that we might wear it to an Oscar party! Will YOU try it? Read on for tips!

The star of True Grit, 14, has been looking so gorgeous this entire awards season– we just can’t believe how polished and elegant she looks at such a young age! We love how Hailee chooses hair and makeup looks that are so interesting but also so age-appropriate. (And maybe it’s a nod to the movie that made her famous, but she loves wearing braids!)

At the Feb. 24 Hollywood Reporter Big 10 Party in LA, Hailee wore a cute white mini-dress and sparkly shoes, and she kept her makeup minimal with berry-pink gloss and black mascara. The real hit was her hair, which was parted to the side in a long braid, with a sparkly hair accent: a crystal black bow holding the braid together. So sweet!

Want to get this braid for yourself? We asked celebrity hairstylist Star Wright of the Ted Gibson salon how to get it!

  • Part your hair to the side, then use a dime-sized amount of ted gibson tame itTM shine lotion to smooth hair back into low pony. (Use an elastic that matches your hair color!)
  • Divide your hair into two equal sections. Smooth each section with another dime-sized amount of tame itTM, then twist both sections clockwise while twisting them together counterclockwise.
  • Secure the bottom with whatever hair accessory you want– barrette, elastic or clip! Finish with ted gibson beautiful hold hairTM spray, and you’re ready to go!
