The Return Of The Braid: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, And More!

Braids make a comeback on stars including Taylor, Uma, and Mary-Kate! Find out how to get one yourself!

Stars have been wearing braids from the sidewalk to the red carpet, making this old favorite new again. If you have long hair, a braid is a perfect way to shake up your beauty look! The best thing about braids is how versatile they are. Depending on how they’re worn, they can look sporty, dressy, or anything in between. Take a look at our gallery to see for yourself how much you can do with a braid, then try one for yourself!

For beginners, the easiest look is a simple side braid. Pull your hair to one side, look in the mirror as you braid it, and secure ends with an elastic. For a more relaxed look, keep the braiding loose; for a tighter, slicker version, pull the braid tight as you go!

Which star wears her braid best? Vote in our poll below!
