5 DAYS IN HAIR
5 times we really wanted Emma Watson's hair
By Maybelle Morgan, 25 March 2017
Can’t get enough of Emma Watson? Ditto. From letting us relive our childhoods with Beauty and the Beast take two, to being perfectly outspoken in her role as activist and UN goodwill ambassador – she's as dreamy as they come. And to top it all off, she's recently been rocking certified modern-day princess hair that we simply can't ignore. Here’s five looks to copy, pronto.
If you were searching for the perfect ‘do for all your fancy RSVPs this year, then this EW hairstyle is it. Loose, undone tendrils at the front? Check. Pinned section at the back? Check, check. Now, just add some berry lippie and your big occasion outfit (talk about belle of the ball).
Party in the back
Yep, sometimes a straight-forward pony just won’t cut it. For that back-do that has all the BNO mileage, split hair into three sections before twisting into individual buns. Top tip: debut it right with a sassy cold-shoulder top.
Side to side
For low-maintenance girls, sometimes it feels only right to let your hair down and just be. The key is in freshly washed hair: blow-dry until it's 90% done, and let the rest do its air-dry thing. Side part and keep make-up simple.
For an oh-so-pretty 'do to take you anywhere, from brunch to big night out, it’s all about a simple braided crown, à la Emma. Side part hair and plait each side from the top, before fastening at the nape of the neck with hair pins. Spritz with hairspray and consider yourself sorted for the next 24 hours.
Drum roll, please. And the award for the showstopper goes to… this divine updo feat. gold leaf blingage, Julius Caesar-style. Pull loosely curled hair back and pin in sections, before fastening gold hair slides to random strands: think above the ears and leading towards the nape of the neck. All hail.
