You expect to be awed by the red carpet fashion at awards showsthe sparkly dresses, the lavish jewelry, the gorgeous heelsbut in a delightfully unexpected change of pace, the SAG Awards also featured a GRIP of approachable hairstyles on the step-and-repeat. Dianna Agron, Kaley Cuoco, Busy Philipps, and Renee Bargh all sported braided crowns of varied techniques tonight.
Braided headbands were a notable trend, but Glee's Dianna Agron sported the most challenging iteration. Not only did she sweep a thick braid across her dome and seamlessly integrate it into the rest of her updo, it was fishtail! Expert status.
Kaley Cuoco also rocked a headband braid but with a thicker plait and middle-parted face-framing bangs. The effect was a more classic, polished, almost princess-y look that complemented her full-skirted, strapless mint green gown.
Busy Philipps used a wound braid to add a little punch to her loose hairstyle. The Cougar Town actress French-braided the front-facing sections of her hair to keep it off her eyes for the pap cams.
Australian TV personality Renee Bargh also rocked the headband braid, but instead of an all-out updo, she wore her hair half-down. Renee kept the same middle-parted bangs that worked so well on Kaley Cuoco, but her plait was a quarter of the size. The rest of her tresses were kept natural and wavy for a beautiful Lady-Guinevere-gone-Grecian hairstyle.
