Kate Bosworth's Braids at the Big Sur Premiere

Forget the Undercut! Kate Bosworth Rocks the Newest Braid Trend

We've seen the braided undercut time and time again on the red carpet, but last night, Kate Bosworth showed off an innovative look that we've dubbed the braided mohawk. Kate attended the Big Sur premiere in New York with a hairstyle that was all business in the front and an edgy take on braids in the back. Her hair was split into three sections, with both sides slicked down to enhance the texture of the braids that started at the crown of her head all the way to the nape of her neck.

On creating the cool coif, celebrity stylist Renato Campora explained, "I was inspired by a book of photographs from photographer J.D. 'Okhai Ojeikere. It is full of the most beautiful, sculptural hairstyles I have ever seen." To achieve the impressive style, Campora started by applying Serge Normant Meta Form Sculpting Pomade ($25) to Kate's hair to make it easier to braid. He then sectioned the hair into three parts: the top, followed by two portions on the left and right. After slicking down the left and right sections, he joined them together to form a baby ponytail. Next, he took the top part, divided it into three sections, and braided each one downward. Once he reached the neck, he worked the braids into the ponytail, pinning everything into place.

Since the spotlight was all on Kate's hair, makeup artist Daniel Martin kept the palette low-key using SK-II Facial Treatment Foundation ($95) for a radiant complexion and the lighter shadows in the Dolce & Gabbana Eye Shadow Quad in Femme Fatale ($59) palette. Kate was redefining punk braids with her woven mohawk, but she kept it classy with a polished finish. What do you think of Kate's braided updo?
