Claire Danes' fishtail braid chignon should have won an award at the 2014 Emmys

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.53.59 AM Image via Gettyimages. Claire Danes, star of Homeland, wore a seriously stylin' fishtail updo last night at the 2014 Emmy Awards. Everyone may have been wearing red, the statement colour of the evening, but this unique take on a chignon was the real big news. (Spoken like a true beauty editor - o f course hair is a bigger priority than wardrobe.) Created by hairstylist Peter Butler, this updo took the idea of a classic chignon and combined it with the so-popular-it-hurts fishtail braid to create something fresh, exciting and elegant. To get a look like this, you'll need to start by making a fishtail braid and then roughing it up a little around the edges (take note: the key to a modern, youthful updo is that things are not perfect). Then anchor it to your head with lots of hair pins and a massive cloud of hairspray. The messier it gets as the night wears on, the better.
