Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Dairies looked stunning at the recent Teen Choice Awards. The beautiful Bulgarian-Canadian actress wore her hair in what stylist Riawna Capri calls “The Red Carpet Rope Braid.” It is also one of the hottest hair trends of the season. This sexy, side-braid will also look fabulous this fall.

 Here is how Riawna created the look:

 Riawna began by blowing drying Nina’s hair using the KMS California FREESHAPE quick blow dry to cut down on drying time. That gave Riawna “more time to style the hair”.

 Once the hair was dry, Riawna used the KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling and finishing spray before curling the hair with a one-inch curling iron in big sections vertically to make a messy beach wave.

 Then Riawna flipped Dobrev’s hair over and sprayed the KMS HAIRPLAY playable texture on liberally to saturate the hair and create a disheveled texture.

 To construct the unique rope braid, Riawna separated the hair into three sections, twisted them clockwise.

She then took those twisted sections and braided them counter-clockwise to showcase the distinct texture.


Riawna then spread out the braid and pulled out some loose pieces to frame Dobrev’s face and give the style an “effortless look”.


She then sprayed her masterpiece with the KMS California HAIRSTAY medium hold hairspray to keep it in place.
