You HAVE to See Cara Delevingne’s Insanely Cool Braid

Cara Delevingne has been having a really good hair week. With pro hairstylist Mara Roszak on board for her various Paper Towns press appearances, she has stepped out in some stunning looks, but her loose braid for the movie's NYC premiere stole the show. 

The L’Oréal Paris stylist told us, "The style was all about effortless, barely there waves, but with an edge. There was a detailed element to the look that still had a casual vibe to it—a fresh take on a braid. Cara’s gown and makeup were so glamorous, so the hair gave it that cool-girl finish.” From the front, it almost resembles a faux bob, with loose pieces softly framing Delevingne's face; from the side and back it's an effortless, deconstructed fat plait that's romantic but totally unprecious. 

To copy the look, begin by spraying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Txt It Tousle Wave Spray ($5) all over hair. Next, curl hair in sections at a horizontal angle to create a natural wave effect, which can also be done using a flatiron if you don’t have a curling iron. Work a combination of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($5) and Blow Dry It Longwear Spray ($5) into the root and body of the hair for added volume and dry texture. Next, very gracefully pull back hair and begin a low braid about one inch below the nape of the neck, allowing a few strands to fall at the front. Secure with a clear elastic, wrapping a strand around the base for a seamless finish. Lastly, lock in the style by misting all over with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray ($15). For added shine, spritz L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss High-Shine Glossing Mist ($7) onto strands.
