Lily Collins is such a little trendsetting fashionista. She always seems to be at the forefront of the coolest and most daring trends in fashion and beauty, and somehow, she always nails them. Showing off a new hairstyle recently debuted on Instagram, Lily Collins wore colorful, visible bobby pins scattered throughout a braided up-do, and you have just GOT to see it.
A masterpiece skillfully created by hairstylist Mara Roszak, the look is so unique and out there that it actually works. I'm projecting seeing a sea-full of vibrant pins on the heads of celebs on red carpets everywhere — just wait and see. While the exposed pin trend has been around for a while (you've probably seen the hashtag bobby pin creation that has been popular before), it's never been done quite like this. With an "X marks the spot" type design, the bobby pins look organized in a cool pattern yet still achieve that effortless quality we all love so much. The best part? This trend is so versatile that it can transform almost any look. You can play with different colored pins matched with loose waves, braided 'dos and even sleek high ponys. My gears are already turning at the endless possibilities.
Collins chose baby blue pins to get the gorgeous look below.
