Braids have graduated from elementary school style and are all the rage with big-name celebrities, many of whom have been gracing the red carpet with the look recently. A fabulous updo also lets you play around with bolder jewelry or balance intricate designs with classic pieces. See how some of these stars accents their own swept-up styles:
At the L.A. premiere of "The Bling Ring" earlier this year, British actress Emma Watson sported several braids, twisted artfully around the back of her head for an intricate and interesting take on traditional pulled-back plaits. Watson complemented the look with a bright red lip and a smoky eye, and a stunning pair of bejeweled pin earrings, similar to the 1.80 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia 10k White Gold Stud Earrings or the Crystal Row Circle Drop Earrings In Rose Gold-Plated or add a splash of color with the Cushion-Cut Crystal And Simulated Turquoise Brass Antique-Finish Vintage-Style Clip-On Earrings.
