At the 2010 SAG Awards, nominee Diane Kruger wore a gorgeous side braided chignon that was romantic and sophisticated. Celebrity stylist Mark Townsend tells us how you can get the look.

Step 1:

"I started by taking a small amount of Moroccanoil Treatment and finger combed it through Diane's dry hair" explained Townsend. "The original Moroccanoil is super light-weight and absorbs right in, to give the hair amazing shine without weighing it down.

Step 2:

"I then took 2 inch sections of hair and wrapped them around a 1 and 1/2 inch curling iron to create waves all over the head. Next, I took a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream in my palms and then raked my hands through the hair to break up the waves, eliminate any fly-aways, and give the hair a soft hold. Next, I gathered her hair behind her left ear and loosely braided it, gathering about an inch from the bottom, then looped the end of the braid back up and pinned it behind her left ear.

Step 3:

"I finished by giving the style hold with L'Oreal Elnett Extra Strong Hold Hairspray followed by a light misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray."
