Hilary Duff's sexy pregnancy style isn't the only thing turning heads about the mom-to-be's appearance.

In addition to stepping out in skin-tight leather pants, tiny miniskirts and super-high heels, the Devoted author, 24, has been experimenting with some fun hairstyles.

And while every celeb in Hollywood is wearing a side braid right now, the version she wore to book signing on October 14 stands out thanks to a simple addition.

"I wanted Hilary's hair to offset her sleek leather pants and bold red top and be all about texture," celeb hairstylist Marcus Francis tells Us Weekly. "Weaving leather into it gives something new to a classic do-it-yourself style."

To get the look, mist two-inch sections of hair with hairspray before using a double barrel iron, leaving out the ends for an undone effect.

Loosely braid hair to one side and tie with a clear elastic, letting a few pieces fall around the face. Weave in a strip of leather, starting at the bottom of the braid and working up. Thread the strand in and out of each section. When you reach the top, secure the fabric at the scalp with bobby pins.
