The Vampire Diaries is one of my favorite shows, and as a result, I love me some Nina Dobrev.

(You know who I like more than Nina Dobrev? Ian Somerhalder.) In related news, I am a 13 year old girl.

Like a pretty ballerina!

Nina’s hairstylist Riawna Capri did a cool braided updo for the Globes last night using UNITE products. Here’s the how-to:

1.) Wash and blow-dry hair.

2.) Nina flipped her head upside down while Riawna made a classic braid from the nape to the crown of her head.

3.) All remaining hair was pulled up into a ponytail.

4.) UNITE BEACH DAY Spray was spritzed throughout the dry ponytail to add density to the hair.

5.) The hair was wrapped and pinned into a bun. (I’d like more details here, but I imagine this was a “pin-as-you-go” type situation.)

6.) The final look was held in place using UNITE GO365 Hairspray and polished off with UNITE SHINA-Mist.

    This is gorgeous. It’s like a classier example of business in the front/party in the back. Any tips on how to do this if you’re trying it on yourself?

    I’m obsessed with Vampire Diaries and Ian Somerhalder as well. You are not alone! Did you hear they’re going to have a Klause spin off called “The Originals” set in New Orleans?
