Bey­oncé rocks braided pig­tails like a pro, but Chloë Se­vi­gny strikes out with a sim­i­lar look

Com­pli­cated up­dos that re­quire hours of styling? No thank you! In true “less is more fash­ion,” A-lis­ters are nix­ing con­trived ’dos and throw­ing back to care­free jump rope days with ca­sual — yet still so­phis­ti­cated — braided pig­tails. “It’s the ul­ti­mate cool-girl hair­style,” says Sarah Lund, braid­ing ex­pert for Kevin.mur­phy hair care, which is a fa­vorite of Chloë Grace Moretz and Cindy Craw­ford. What takes the twists from pic­ture-day dar­ling to grownup gor­geous? “An im­per­fect vibe with lots of tex­ture,” says Lund. To nail the look, start by work­ing a dime-sized amount of light paste ( like Be­yond The Zone Main At­trac­tion Matte Fiber Paste, $8, sally­beauty.com) through hair to give strands grit and vol­ume. Then take cues from these celebri­ties to get the most beau­ti­ful braid styles.
