Which style do you like more—a side braid or a low bun? Why choose? Kate Mara incorporated both looks into her side-swept curls. At first glance her style looks simple, but the intricate details added a romantic touch. “We wanted her hair to feel young, romantic, and airy,” said her hairstylist Christopher Naselli, who used Oribe’s Foundation Mist ($22; oribe.com) to give the updo staying power. He added texture with a curling iron, then start braiding a piece along the right side of Mara’s head, stopping at the nape of her neck. Naselli pulled the remainder of her hair to the left side, then twisted it into a low bun. Gorgeous!
