The prettiest braids—no matter what your hair length
There are tons of new ways to braid your hair this season. Click through for inspiration!
Wow them from the front—and the back—with a ballerina bun and a mini Dutch braid down to your nape.
It's time to go double Dutch—with your hair that is! We love this recent double braided look from the gorgeous model. To recreate the style, divide hair straight down the middle and Dutch braid both sides. Make sure you pull out sections of the braid to look more effortless, then tie it back into a bun or a ponytail.
A loose milkmaid braid with wispy tendrils is an easy way to chic up your style. If your hair is long enough, start with a low ponytail, braid and secure it along the crown of your head with bobby pins.
The combination of a deep side part and a loose French braid is a great way to get your hair out of your face, but still keep it down.
You can have shorter hair and still achieve an interesting braided look like Julianne's: Flip your hair upside down, then start from the nape and work your way up so you catch all the shorter layers. Top it off with a ponytail or a little twisty bun.
Add interest to a slicked back look with a simple braid wrapped around a low bun.
Especially if you have shorter hair, a tight French braid along the hairline looks stylish—complete it all the way to the back or tuck it behind your ear with a bobby pin.
Leave it to our hair muse to give us the braid of all braids! To copy the look, divide your hair into five different parts and tightly braid each section. Then use bobby pins to secure them vertically.
2013 was a year full of firsts for me: I ran my longest distance (12 miles), learned how to cook and landed my dream job here at Lucky! Something else that surprisingly ranked high up on my list of personal accomplishments? Mastering a fishtail braid. I know what you're thinking: After years of seeing all sorts of fancy braids on the runways and red carpet, a fishtail now seems like it's one of the most basic styles. But no matter how many how-tos I read, my fingers just didn't want to cooperate. It was finally thanks to Lucky's video series where stylist David Diegez showed an easy video tutorial when I figured it out.

Now that I'm hooked on braids, it doesn't cease to amaze me the different types of braids that have woven their way onto the red carpet as of late: From side braids to milkmaid styles, it seems like the hair inspiration is endless.
