Cameron Diaz and her gorgeous mane are currently making the promotional rounds for her latest movie, Annie, and one of her best hairstyles from the tour so far is this chic side braid. It's causal yet glamorous, and a style that's oh so easy to copy!

To find out how to recreate it on your own locks, just follow the tutorial below.

Get the look

Step one
Starting with damp hair, apply a straightening cream throughout. Make sure you get good all-over coverage as the cream will protect your hair from heat damage.

Step two
Divide your hair into three sections: top, middle and nape. Blow-dry each section with the help of a paddle brush to keep your strands straight.

Step three
Once dried, part your hair either in the middle or to one side. As Cameron proves in the photos above, this hairstyle will look great wherever the location of your part is.

Step four
Gather all of your hair over one shoulder and shake some of the top layers loose.

Step five
Braid the longest layers all the way to the ends and secure with a small hair tie.

Step six
If you need to, tease a few strands loose to frame your face and soften the look.

Step seven
To protect your hair from unwanted frizz and flyaways, finish your new hairstyle with a veil of regular strength hairspray.

Et voilĂ , your casual A-list 'do is now complete!
