Maria Menounos' braided up-do was right on trend at this years Oscar awards. To get this look, apply mousse to clean hair to give some texture, and curl hair to give loose waves. Make two messy plaits, either side of the parting, taking more hair as you work towards the nape of the neck. Pin the ends in place to create a bun. Pull some hair out of the plait for a less 'done' look. Finish with hairspray.
