Elizabeth Olsen

The youngest Olsen has style wisdom beyond her years. Lizzy’s braid is the perfect example of understated elegance, with loose strands and side placement adding an extra touch of casual chic. For a look like hers, create a deep side part and gather hair into a ponytail over your right ear. Loosely braid the ponytail, and leave a few face framing strands free.

Renee Bargh

Think Renee Bargh’s SAG Awards hairstyle is too complicated to try at home? Think again. Beauty meccas like Sephora are selling faux-hair headbands perfect for slipping on over any updo or half-up style.
