Emma Watson’s ‘Heidi’ Braid — Get The Look

The experts at Arrojo Salon in New York City comment on how to get Emma’s milkmaid braids:

“The look exemplifies that twines can be used for more than the disheveled elegance of modern street stye; keep them polished, refined, combined with the right ensemble, and braids can also be a special occasion ‘do.

Step 1: Prep hair with ReFINISH dry shampoo. Layer into hair, shake and tousle with hands, creating a gritty texture with lots of grip –– which is perfect for braiding.

Step 2: Divide crown into two sections. Loosely braid each of the two sections into its own two-strand entwine. Secure each side with elastic. Grab one of the braids and cross it over the opposite braid. Pin in place. Repeat on the opposite side, creating a polished milkmaid braid.

Step 3: Mist finished style with PrIMP to calm down flyways, add hold and grip.”

So tell us, which hairstyle is tops — Emma’s or Ashley’s? (We think both girls look amazing!)
