Hot Trend Alert+How To: Dianna Agron's Headband Braid From The SAG Awards

I was going through SAG awards red carpet pictures and noticed that a lot the celebrities were rocking the headband braids. Headband braids dominated the spring/summer fashion week that took place a couple of months ago. I remember looking at the headband braids that the models were sporting, and thinking that is something I will never do. 

SAG awards
Never say never, right? It was love at first sight when I saw Diana Agron's headband braid at the SAG awards. She had the best headband braid of the night. I tried to recreate the look today. Mine is not as messy, even though I wish it was. Messiness shall prevail the next time I make this braid. 

Here is a simple way to make this headband braid. 

Celebrity stylist Adir Abergel is the man behind Dianna Agron's fabulous headband braid. He used  Fekkai Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray, after rough drying her hair. I used my Tony&Guy Beach Spray to create the same textured effect.

Celebrity stylist Adir Abergel created a textured fishtail braid starting at the left side of the ear. He then wrapped it around the head like a crown for a chic focal point up front.
I did not want to pin my bangs back, because that wouldn't have suited me.
