Nina Dobrev loves to rock a side braid and we’re not complaining! We love this look on her! This TCA style was actually a ‘red carpet rope’ — see exactly how her hairstylist created the look below!
Nina Dobrev looks more stunning every time we see her! At the 2014 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on August 10, she rocked a side “rope braid” in her hair, along with a smokey eye. We’re spilling the details on her look from her glam squad below!
Nina Dobrev At TCA — Stunning Rope Braid Hairstyle
Hairstylist Riawna Capri calls her look “The Red Carpet Rope Braid.”
Here’s the exact how-to:
“Riawna created the unique look by blow drying Nina’s hair using the KMS California FREESHAPE quick blow dry to cut down on drying time, leaving more time for Riawna to style the hair. Once the hair was dry, Riawna used the KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling and finishing spray before curling the hair with a 1-inch curling iron in big sections vertically to make messy beach waves. Then Riawna flipped over Nina’s hair and sprayed the KMS HAIRPLAY playable texture liberally to saturate the hair and create a disheveled texture.
To construct the unique rope braid, Riawna separated the hair into three sections, twisted them clockwise and then took those twisted sections and braided them counter clockwise to showcase distinct texture. Riawna then spread out the braid and pulled out some loose pieces to frame Nina’s face and give an effortless look. She sprayed her final masterpiece with the KMS California HAIRSTAY medium hold hairspray to keep it in place.”
Nina Dobrev’s Makeup & New Eye Color
Yes, you read that right. Nina changed her eye color last night using AIR OPTIX COLORS contact lenses in Gemstone Green!
“I’m a huge fan of AIR OPTIX COLORS contact lenses. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE color. It’s one way that I feel I can really express myself. Whether it’s royal blue or vibrant green, I always try to bring color to the red carpet to express myself. Look, I like my eyes, I like my face, I like what I was born with — it’s not that I want to change that, but at the same time, I wear mascara. It’s about enhancing my own features.”
Her makeup was done by Beau Nelson using NYX Cosmetics.
Will you try to get Nina’s rope braid for yourself, HollywoodLifers?
