A chicer-than-chic plait, glam jewel-toned eyeliner, contoured cheeks for days.… We know you love celebrity beauty trends as much as we do! So Beauty Breakdown host Jackie Miranne tapped Us Weekly’s beauty director Gwen Flamberg (she has every glam squad pro on speed dial) to identify and deconstruct the hottest looks off the red carpet that you can DIY at home.
First up: mini-braids. The elegant style worn by Shailene Woodley, Danielle Brooks, Emma Stone, Dakota Fanning and more can elevate any length or texture, making it the perfect cubicle-to-cocktail style for every holiday party. And the best news is that there are myriad ways to rock the style — from pulled-back plaits to a full-on updo. Get the scoop and watch the how-to now in the video above!
Check back weekly for new episodes of Stylish’s new video series Beauty Breakdown (we can’t share too much yet, but next week’s how-to covers a universally flattering makeup must!). And for more festive style inspo today, check out this segmented ponytail first seen on Chrissy Teigen.
