Hair Idea: Amanda Seyfried's Messy Side Braid

I love seeing what looks Dear John star Amanda Seyfried brings to each event she attends. This messy side braid is super easy and great for casual or formal occasions, and is something you can whip out whenever you're having a bad hair day.

What You'll Need:
  • hair tie
  • hairspray
  • comb
What to Do:
  1. Create a deep side part. (Pro Tip: If you usually part your hair to the right, try parting it to the left -- forcing hair in the the direction it's not used to will add a little volume.)
  2. Braid your hair into a normal 3-strand braid. Tie the end with a small hair tie.
  3. Carefully pull apart the braid with your fingers, making it wider.
  4. Adjust as necessary and spritz lightly with hairspray.
 Hair Hint:
This look works best if your hair isn't straightened.


  1. Hmmmm...I like it but I don't know if I could pull it off. Plus I like my hair nice and tight, I'm always fixing it if it's messy :/ Sierra

  2. Sierra,
    I'm the complete opposite. My hair is perpetually messy, so I try to make it look like I did it on purpose. (;
