Hollywood's hottest young stars rocked the red carpet at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, sporting the "It" hairstyle of the season -- a chic braid! 

Shay Mitchell, Nina Dobrev and Lucy Hale all donned the must-have trend and put their own stylish spin on the bohemian beauty look.

While these lovely ladies may have gotten some help from the pros, celebrity hair guru Lea Journo has some easy rules to help create the perfect 'do at home.

1. TEXTURE: Starting these looks with dirty hair is your best bet as the texture will not only help hold the your look but will also make braiding the hair much easier. Should your locks need a little texture boost, try out a hair styling lotion like Lea Journo's La Form or a fantastic tried and true beach spray!

2. KEEP IT EASY: The best thing about a braided look is that it should be fuss free! Stop by the salon for those advance level looks but don't be afraid to play around with the starter three-strand braid for a simple side look or an elegant half-up half-down look.

3. DAY of NIGHT: These ladies looked fabulous with these looks on the red carpet and you should definitely keep them in mind for your next gala, but a great braid can take you to through your errands all day to a hot date!

We can't wait to put these beauty tips to use!
