Nina Dobrev and Shay Mitchell play two of our favorite fictional heroines — Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries and Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars, respectively — but which TV starlet rocked the perfect side braid at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards Sunday night (August 10)? Both were on trend with midriff-baring ensembles and messy side braids, so Wetpaint Entertainment is asking you, dear readers, to tell us which starlet’s braid is your fav.


Is it Nina’s twisted fishtail braid? The TVD star looked flawless in a colorful Vionnet combo (a crop top and shorts), as accessorized with pink Kurt Geiger shoes and a gold Michael Kors clutch. It’s a fun and super casual look, which is perfect for Nina, who took home the surfboard for Choice TV Actress: Sci-Fi/Fantasy during the show.

Or do you prefer Shay’s messy side braid? The PLL starlet rocked the red carpet in a white lace Misha Collection dress, metallic Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Rodo clutch. But it was her dark red lip color that really pulled this vampy look together. Shay is a girly-girl, so this look really highlights her ultra-glam taste.

So which braid is your favorite? Hit the comments with your pick and don’t forget to tell us why!
