Hair

3 fresh braids to try this minute!

 
The Top Braid
We’re obsessed with Kate Bosworth’s take on the high bun. To start, take a 2-inch wide section of hair at the top of your hair and make a wide braid, working toward the back of your head. Tie off the braid and pull it back with the rest of your hair into a bun at the crown of your head. So sweet and romantic—we love how Kate paired hers with florals and lace.
 

The Side Braid
Lauren Conrad updates her bitty braid for a messy French side braid—still casual, but ultra-chic. Make a deep side part and gather all your hair over to one shoulder. Craft a French braid on the side of your head, and tie off the end with a ribbon, cord or elastic. Buff in a bit of dry shampoo to give it some texture, and finish with a shot of hairspray. Perfect party look!
 
 
The Double Braid
You’ll need longish hair for this look. To get Jessica Alba’s no-fuss style, create a center part and divide hair into two sections. French braid each section all the way to the end and tie them off with a hair band. Attach each of the ends to the opposite side of your head with a bobby pin, and tuck in the ends.  Laid-back glam at it’s best!
