Get Naomie Harris' half-up braided style
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.
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
After washing your hair, brush it through and give yourself a centre parting.
Apply some curling mousse and scrunch with your fingertips.
Leave your hair to dry naturally or, if you're pressed for time, blow dry it. Just don't forget the heat protection spray!
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.
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.
Repeat on the other side.
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!
