Jennifer Lawrence CHAIN UPDO!


Dear Diary,

Jennifer Lawrence has left Hollywood buzzing after her appearance in Hunger Games as Katniss.  She’s young, beautiful, witty and talented…okay, okay, we get it Jen.  I’m contemplating taking up archery now…like I have time for that, thanks.  I haven’t even read the series and was still there on opening night waiting in a ridiculous line amongst fifteen-year-olds.  It was a really exciting date night experience elbowing those youngsters off to get the best seats and reliving my days of getting dropped off at the theater (thanks Mom!) to see Titanic…seven times.  That’s 1,358 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.  Then they show the previews for the re-release of Titanic in 3D…I might have to go again.  All in all, it was an extremely entertaining movie and Lawrence didn’t disappoint.  She never does on the red carpet either…

This stunning Oscar-contending actress looked just like the statue at the London premiere.  She rocked a gold Prabal Gurung gown, with a smokey eye and nude lip.  She literally LINKED her look together with a CHAIN in her updo!  Why should it only look like a party on your arm when your hair can dazzle too?!


* Hair brush

* Hair elastic

* Bobby pins

* Chain (necklace) or trim embellishment

 A trim embellishment can also create this look without weighing your hair down…


1. Secure your hair with an elastic at the nape of your neck. (I prefer mine to the side) When your elastic is pulled tight, only bring your hair halfway through creating a loop with your ends loose.

2. Grab a section of your ponytail and wrap it different directions.  Pin the section in place and continue until the rest of your hair is finished.  Don’t worry about it looking perfect, the idea is to create a soft, messy, romantic feel.

3. Once your entire ponytail is pinned, wrap a light-weight chain necklace or trim embellishment around the bun.

4. Loop the bobby pin through the chain openings and pin the embellishment in place wherever you want it to drape.  Zigzag it, swirl it,…you can do whatever you like… Continue until you reach the end of the chain or embellishment.

5. Viola!  A romantic updo for the red carpet, wedding or special event…
