Though her look didn’t exactly match Anna Wintour’s mandate for white tie attire, Emma Stone was still one of the most eye-catching celebrities at last week’s Met Gala. Her pink-on-pink Thakoon separates looked awesome on her ivory skin, but it was that messy side braid that had everyone swooning and stalking her photos. It’s all we’ve been obsessing about all week and we just have to have the look for summer. Care to try this Met Gala worthy braid on? Click through to style notes to learn how to emulate the look. –– Michelle Rotbart

Step One: Apply generous helping of styling whip and five pumps of volume foam at the roots of hair while it’s still damp. Then rough dry hair away from head to build texture.

Step Two: Once hair is completely dry, tease the crown for added height.

Step Three: Part hair toward your left side and create a wide, three-strand braid. Secure the ends with a clear elastic and allow and face-framing pieces to fall in place. Finish with primp.
