3 fresh braids to try this minute!
Start spring with a new ’do. We’ve found three fab new ways to wear cute braids—all straight from the stars!
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!
