With her seriously spunky hairstyle, peachy cheeks, and oxblood lips, Julianne Hough hit a beauty home run at Elle's Women in Hollywood Celebration last night. Matte, peachy eye shadow and blush were the perfect complements to her intensely pigmented crimson lipstick. But the real masterpiece was her elaborate twisted updo, proving that blunt-cut ladies can still sport an elaborate braid.
To re-create the stylish coiffure, start by weaving a loose, tousled plait beginning at the center of your forehead working backwards. After tying it off, tease the crown, slick the sides, and pin the back into a makeshift bun. The result is a mussy but glamorous updo that showcases your braid. Top off with bold, bright makeup à la Julianne, and you have a trendy-for-Fall beauty ensemble.
