How to Make Jennifer Lawrence’s Red Carpet Hair Secret WAY Affordable
Being versatile is part of Jennifer Lawrence‘s job description — the Academy Award-winning actress slips pretty effortlessly into all of her roles. This also applies to her serious style. At the Paris premiere of Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Jennifer channeled serious boho vibes, a total 180 from the actress’s sleek femme fatale look at the London premiere, when she wore a long, printed dress with exposed sides held together with chains, her hair slicked back and straight. But it was the secret tucked away in those tresses that really had us doing a double take.
In France, the 25-year-old actress showed up in a long, white gown and wore her short hair in an ethereal crown braid. The best part was in the details: If you look closely, you can see that she weaved a diamond and gold necklace through it.
According to People, her stylist Jenny Cho used a Dana Rebecca Designs “Jennifer by the Yard” piece that costs nearly $5,000 to add a little bling to her hair. Cho pulled out random pieces of the braid for a messy yet chic look. Eek! That’s pricey, but the effect is so stunning. We’re torn between this and the time stylist Mark Townsend incorporated Jennifer Behr headbands into J. Law’s braided bun for the 2012 Hunger Games premiere.
If you’re looking to recreate this exact look and have $5K burning a hole in your pocket, unfortunately the Dana Rebecca necklace is on backorder. But psh, we have a DIY that shows three ways to turn your jewelry into hair accessories. Try weaving your own shiny piece of jewelry through your hair for a New Year’s Eve party or wedding for just a touch of shimmer.
It’ll definitely make you sparkle ;)
