Forget side ponytail braids -- the hottest plaits in Hollywood are milkmaid-inspired!

Mandy Moore and Kirsten Dunst both opted for the wrap-around headband 'do on Monday night. Moore, who wore a black Lela Rose dress at charity event in Hollywood, wore her brunette locks in a center part while Dunst, who stepped out at the Bachelorette after party in Park City, Utah, styled hers with a deep side-part and a few face-framing tendrils.

To keep a milkmaid-inspired braid from looking too literal, take a cue from Dunst and go for lots of texture and don't be afraid to leave out a few wispy pieces to soften the look.

Or, if your braiding skills are lacking, go for a halo-style braided headband, available at stores like Sephora and Ulta.
