Braids have always been one of the most popular hairstyles as they are simple to create and are very versatile. You can make anything from a sleek refined braid for an elegant event to a messy loose one if you are just going to hang out with your friends. So far this year, we’ve seen celebrities sport all types of braids and here are some of the most popular.
If you want a good example of the simple loose braid working wonders on celebrities, look no further than Victoria Beckham and Blake Lively. They have both worn a messy side-braid and it looks great on both of them. With this hairstyle, these stars manage to take something as simple as a braid and make it into a messy yet glamorous hairdo. Best of all, this type of braid is easy to recreate as it is designed to look messy. The only problem is trying to keep such a loose braid in place.
Clearly Blake Lively is a big fan of braids, as our next braided hairstyle, the fishtail braid, has been sighted on both her and Kim Kardashian. Although much neater than the messy side braid, the fishtail braid still has a hint of mess to it. While some braids tend to make your hair look thinner, however, the fishtail has the advantage of making it look much fuller. Keep a lookout for this type of braid as it is at the top of the hairstyle trends appearing this year. Photo Copyright of PR PHOTOS
