Naomie Harris wore an excellent half-up hairstyle with braids to the Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom New York premiere. We found her style so inspiring that we decided to create a hair tutorial.

Half-up hair

For the event, the actress wore her hair down in a gorgeous gorgous wavy style with an added twist (or braid, in this case). The braids at the side of her head added a pretty edge as well as helping to frame her face and showing off her gorgeous makeup look!

Get the waves

Step one

After washing your hair, brush it through and give yourself a centre parting.

Step two

Apply some curling mousse and scrunch with your fingertips.

Step three

Leave your hair to dry naturally or, if you're pressed for time, blow dry it. Just don't forget the heat protection spray!

Step four

Apply some salt spray and scrunch your hair some more.

Get the braids

Starting on one side of your hair, pull the front section away from the rest of your hair.

Step two

Starting a couple of inches down, braid this section and fasten at the end with a clear hairband. Starting further down with give you that soft, natural look that Naomie was working at the premiere.

Step three

Repeat on the other side.

Step four

Take both braids clasp them both together together at the back of your head with a hair clip. Naomie wore a gorgeous vintage one, follow her lead and turn your hair clip into a style statement!

So there you have it, a gorgeous half up hairstyle for for the red carpet... or a night on the town. Thanks Naomie!
