On February 5, Chrissy Teigen accompanied husband John Legend to the 47th Annual NAACP Image Awards where he was honored with the 2016 President's Award. The model and mom-to-be looked chic and elegant in a form-fitting black gown by Haney, which she paired with a bold pink-lipped beauty look and dramatic braided hairstyle!
A red carpet braid
Created by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, Chrissy's look was achieved by weaving a Dutch braid from the highest point of her head straight down the ends. A Dutch braid is basically an inside-out French braid, which means you just need to cross the sections underneath one another instead of over. This high-fashion hairstyle is simple yet impressive and- best of all- can be achieved in a matter of minutes!
If you want to get the look, then keep reading to find out how...
Start with dry hair and brush through it to remove any tangles. Next, spritz mattifying texture spray throughout to help your braid stay in place.
Smooth all of the hair up to the top of your head and split it in 3 sections. Now, Dutch braid straight back, adding sections as you move down. Once there's no more hair to add, just continue braiding down to the ends and secure them with a thin hair tie.
Use your finger tips to gently pull the braid on both sides to loosen it up all the way down. Finally, mist your hairstyle all over with a strong hold hairspray and you're finished!
