This week we found heaps of hair inspiration on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 red carpet. The darling 12-year-old Willow Shields wore a braided topknot we in our 20s and 30s would kill to sport. Amanda "AJ" Michalka also stunned us with a gorgeous face-framing tangle of French braids at the premiere.

Then there's the adorable Taylor Swift, who twisted her dirty blonde tresses up into a beautiful updo while out promoting her newest album, Red. And in honor of tonight's American Music Awards—will you be watching?—we brought you this easy-to-DIY hair tutorial on how to recreate her pretty half-braided ponytail from last year's event.

So who's it going to be? Take a peek at the prettiest braids from the week, and cast your vote for which lovely lady's style looked the best!
