See Every Angle of Jessica Chastain's Epic Tiered Braid
It's easy to get jaded about updos during award season — top-knot here, sporty-chic ponytail there, and maybe some romantic crown braids. Unfortunately, we all can't be Jared Leto and win the night with the simplest look. Sometimes — when we hold our breath and wish hard upon a star — a celebrity hits the red carpet with a jaw-dropping look that makes us grab our phones and want to tweet and pin the bleep out of it.
Such was the case when redheaded bombshell Jessica Chastain rocked a tiered braid and half-up hairstyle combo at the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards. We're used to seeing the actress with Old Hollywood glam waves and red lips, so this look felt like a real risk for her beauty style. And we loved it. Loved it. As in, expect to see this on our secret wedding Pinterest board tonight.
Let's break down the 'do: From the front, it seemed like a classic ponytail, sleekly pulled back, with no part. But from the back, it was a pretty festive party. There were two half-up hairstyles pulled back into knots — the second one a bit smaller. Then, the whole tail turned into a bohemian and loose three-strand braid. A large chunk of hair was left loose and straight at the bottom. And her copper color shone bright under the HD lights. Need more? We get it.
