The award for coolest hair at this weekend goes to Kate Bosworth. Combining three of our favourite things – the tousled lob, a braid and a cool half bun.

Her stylist, AKA genius Bridget Brager,  breaks it down for us:

Step 1: Starting on second-day, dry hair, take a small section (no larger than the width of the tip of your ring finger) of hair where you would normally have a centre part. This section should end at the crown of your head, just before your head starts to curve down.

Step 2: Once this section is created, begin to make a tiny French braid toward your forehead. Finish the braid where your hairline stops on your forehead, and make two sections by splitting the third strand of the braid. Secure the braid with a small bobby pin. Push the pin up the middle of the braid as flat to the head as possible. Split the unbraided ends of hair around your face to create framing.

Step 3: Next, sprinkle volumising powder or dry shampoo to lengths of your hair for added texture. Then gather hair starting from the top of the ears back into a half-up, half-down knot (including the ends from your braid). Secure with a clear elastic band. Let any pieces around your face fall down to tuck behind your ears.

Step 4: Finish the look with hairspray.
