Alicia Vikander takes the boho braid to the next level

The actress gives us major hair envy

Contributor / May 25 2017

Actress Alicia Vikander attended the premiere of Jason Bourne in London last night, and naturally, she looked perfect.

The Swedish beauty was dressed in a breathtaking silver Louis Vuitton gown that fittingly showed off her petite figure. But that’s not what caught our eye: last night it was all about her hairstyle.

Alicia styled her long brunette hair in a laidback twisted braid that sat over her shoulder. Her hair was roughly parted in the middle with flyaway strands around the face for a relaxed contrast to her sequined dress.

Upon closer look however, we noticed that Alicia’s braid wasn’t actually a braid at all.

While Alicia’s hair starts out with a loose braid on the sides, the rest of her hair loosely falls into a looped ponytail, giving the effect of a braid without the fuss of an actual plait.

Clever, huh?

For a copycat version of Alicia’s hairstyle, simply style your hair into a loose low ponytail after roughly parting your hair in the middle. Working your way down the pony, apply hair elastics at couple of inches to create bunches along the lengths. Pull a few loose strands around the face and in the “braid” to relax the style.
