Which one of Eva Longoria's hairstyles do you like best?

Year after year, Eva Longoria's hair kills it on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. This year, we spotted the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson with a gorgeous messy bun hairstyle, and in 2014, the philanthropist rocked a similarly stunning fishtail braid. The question is, which hairstyle would you be more likely to try on your own tresses?

Messy bun

As red carpet updos go, Eva's messy bun is definitely one of the most accessible hairstyles we've seen in Cannes. It's oh so simple yet impossibly chic, and the undone finish makes it totally copiable in real life.

Styling tip

To get the texture just right before putting your hair up, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blowdry your hair in twisted sections. Once dried, shake your fingers through the twists to break up the waves, then use a 1" curling iron to add more movement as needed.

Textured fishtail braid

Another perfect alternative to sleek, straight locks, Eva's fishtail braid featured a disheveled finish that contrasted beautifully with her polished outfit. The intricate fishtail technique made sure the 'do appeared styled while the texture prevented it from seeming tryhard.

Styling tip

To add texture to your finished braid, spritz your plait with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, then roll it between your palms until it's slightly mussed.

What do you think? Which hairstyle gets your vote?
