Tonight's Teen Choice Awards red carpet was a hot spot for beauty inspiration. But our favorite trend? Peekaboo hair. By that we mean, updos and styles that were simple from the front, but totally surprising from behind. With a quick spin or glance over the shoulder, celebs revealed secret braids that were equal parts boho, glam, and rocker.

It's the coolest hairstyle idea to steal for hot summer days. Pair peekaboo plaits with simple accessories, highlights, or extensions — anything goes. And it doesn't matter if you aren't well-versed in the fishtail or French; a classic three-strand weave in an unexpected place is all you need.

Ahead, see the inspiring Teen Choice Awards trend that we didn't even know we were missing out on until now.
