See who's worn updos worthy of a princess (Blake! Emily!) and get the easy four step how-tos from the pros who created the regal looks


"I wanted to create a soft '20s mood, but in a different, modern way," says Laini Reeves of the hairstyle she created for the best actress nominee using Moroccanoil products. "We started by changing the texture of her hair before we went on to loosely braid and roll the chignon."
Four Easy Steps
1: Apply Hydrating Styling Cream from roots to ends on damp hair and rough dry.
2: Make a side part and curl using a 1-in. Iron, framing the face with front sections.
3: Gather and pull back the rest of hair, making a loose braid that you double up, roll upwards and pin at the nape. Use five thick bobby pins to secure the style in place.
4: Release front sections and pin them behind the ear, finishing with a mist of Luminous Hairspray.
