Braids can be sweet and sexy. Not many hairstyles can be both at the same time. Thus the appeal. Get it wrong, however, and you can end up looking like a Princess Leia reject from a Star Wars convention and we can't have that now can we?
The details here to focus on are softness and simplicity. You want to frame your face delicately, not create major architecture. Check out Drew, Nicole, Lauren and Peaches above for perfect examples of wearing the braid trend with style. Master this look now and it will take you right into summer. If this looks like too much work to you or your hair is too thin to create a really lovely braid why not cheat with one of Sephora's braided headbands? You'll be trend perfect in nano seconds!
