MINKA KELLY

We don't know which part of Minka's high-volume pony (worn to the premiere of The Butler in N.Y.C.) we're more obsessed with: the chic wrap of hair around the elastic or those textured chestnut waves.

CHLOË GRACE MORETZ

There are so many things happening with the star's do at the Carrie premiere in Hollywood. She's working what looks like a side braid that's been totally deconstructed, plus some smaller, tighter plaits that weave from one side of her head to the other.

ALLISON WILLIAMS

If our hair was as long and shiny as the Girls star's mane, we'd wear it down all the time. But Allison pulls it back into a sleek, braided chignon at the Exploring the Arts Gala in N.Y.C.

CARLA GUGINO

Either Carla has a bumpit under there, or her hairstylist went home with a bad case of carpal tunnel from all that teasing. The actress selects a high-volume French twist for Broadway's opening night of The Glass Menagerie in N.Y.C.

MALIN AKERMAN

Her dress at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in L.A. has a lot going on, but the actress's hairstyle is fairly simple: two side twists joined together in a low bun at the nape of her neck.

DREW BARRYMORE

We've seen a bunch of braided styles on the red carpet, but Drew's trifecta of plaits intertwined in low bun – worn to the Estee Lauder Modern Muse event in N.Y.C. – is one of the most unique yet.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON

At first glance, the actress's side-parted updo (worn to the Toronto premiere of Don Jon) looks quite simple. But when you check it out from the side and back, you can see the front is sectioned off from the rest of her hair to create that cool swoop effect. And yes, that's a net to keep the chignon in place.

JENNIFER MORRISON

Hollywood's Rapunzel goes for yet another braid. This time it's a side plait that starts at her part and ends in an undone over-the-shoulder fishtail at the Gravity premiere in Toronto.

We want to bring a photo of the actress's piecey fringe to our hairstylist, since she totally has us contemplating bangs. She pulls back the rest of her hair into a maze of curls at the Dallas Buyers Club premiere in Toronto.

MILEY CYRUS

This hairstyle, made up of two Gwen Stefani-esque knots, shaved sides and straight short strands in back, isn't the most confusing thing Miley did at the VMAs in Brooklyn, but it's on the long list.

BELLA THORNE

We wonder if the actress had trouble deciding which hairstyle to choose for the Imagen Awards in Beverly Hills. Because she combines two very different looks – bouncy side-swept curls on one side and a bunch of mini braids on the other – for a surprising hybrid style.

AMBER HEARD

We've seen plenty of braided looks on the red carpet (see: here, here and here), but Amber's version (worn to a luncheon in Beverly Hills), feels fresh thanks to the messy side bun and loose wisps of hair in the front.

If only our side ponytails looked this glamorous! Diane amps up the style with a deep side part, a few face-framing curls and a section of hair wrapped around the base, at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's luncheon in Beverly Hills.

Her dress is all volume in the back, but Lily's mod hairstyle is all volume in the back, front and well, everywhere. She wears the '60s-inspired updo with a black ribbon headband at the Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, Calif.

No beauty trend has been more ubiquitous this summer than the messy crown plait (nail art, you're a close second) and the blonde actress joins the braid brigade with her pretty updo at the Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, Calif.

The supermodel's braid-bun hybrid (worn to the America's Got Talent pre-show event in N.Y.C.) is quite the departure from those sexy waves we're used to seeing on her.

We know Katniss Everdeen loves her plaits. Turns out, J.Law does too. The actress sports a a number of mini braids pulled back into a low bun at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire press event in San Diego.

NIKKI REED

From the front the actress's style looks like a basic summery updo, but from the back there's some serious braid action happening. Nikki sports a messy French with pieces of hair woven throughout at 7-Eleven's 86th Birthday Party in Malibu, Calif.

LEA MICHELE

Can't talk, busy trying to replicate Lea's Rapunzel-like braid, which she wears to the FEED USA and Target launch event in N.Y.C. We love how it looks just a little messy from the front and straight-outta-bed-messy (in a sexy way!) from all other angles.

JENNIFER MORRISON

From now on, we're referring to the actress as the Princess of Plaits. First we fell in love with this braid. Then this one. And now this fishtail crown with it's face-framing pieces, which she wears to the Some Girls premiere in L.A.

Considering some of the looks she's pulled off in the past, we were expecting an outrageous ensemble from Diane at the Met Gala, but the only real risk she took was with her hair, dip-dyeing the end of her ponytail bright pink.

BLAKE LIVELY

When you're wearing a custom Gucci gown to the Met Gala, your hair needs to be equally head-turning. Blake goes for a triple-banded ponytail with lots of texture.

Though the actress covers up her elastic by wrapping a section of hair around it, just as Blake does, that's where the similarities end. At a PaleyFest event, Hayden's pony is like a cheerleader's: high and sleek, without a strand out of place.
