We’ve seen a ton of gorgeous nighttime braids but here’s a perfect casual chic daytime idea!

Ok, seriously, great minds must think alike because I can’t go a day without seeing a new, covetable celeb braid! First, it was Malin Akerman‘s fun braided pony then, Hilary Duff‘s beautiful fishtail bun and now, Jessica Alba is sporting a super-chic yet totally daytime appropriate braid. Jessica was spotted out in LA running errands on Apr. 13 with this French braid and bun hybrid. I love that she kept her hair a little fuzzy – easy to do if you’re creating this look on two day old hair yourself. To copy Jessica, part your hair on one side and make a three-inch wide French braid starting at the part. When you get to your ear, just braid the hair regularly and then secure at the end with an elastic. Gather all the rest of the hair except the braid into a low, messy bun. The more haphazard, the cooler it will look. Then, using bobby pins, attach the end of the braid to the head. I will definitely be trying this style out this weekend. Can you see yourself wearing this look for a casual Sunday brunch with friends too? – Marta Topran
