Amanda Seyfried Will Change the Way You Feel About Cornrows

By Klaudia Tirico / September 8, 2014

We’ve been seeing a ton of upgraded braids at New York Fashion Week so far, and it seems like Amanda Seyfried is keeping up with the trends as they come down the runway. While promoting her new flick, While We’re Young, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Seyfried showed off a sweet way to rock cornrows that sort of reminded us of the look from Marissa Webb’s spring 2015 show. This proves that cornrows can add a ton of edge to a look, but they can also be quite romantic, too!

Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist Jenny Cho was the woman behind the flirty look. “I was inspired by her fun, flirty dress and wanted to play along with this theme,” said Cho. “I decided to do a French twist with a knot into a ponytail, and I think it complemented the dress perfectly!” Here is a step-by-step to recreate the look: 
Step 1: “On already dry hair, make a side part and apply Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Weightless Dry Shampoo at the roots, followed by a drop of Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil on the ends.”
Step 2: “French braid each side, eventually meeting the two braids at the back of the head.”
Step 3: “Finish the braids at the nape and make two knots with the hair that is not braided. Use a ponytail holder at the base of the knots and bobby pins throughout so the shape stays put.”
