Whether your hair is long, short, black or blonde, the appeal of the braid is universal. Perfect for a polished but playful look, the braid is one of the most versatile hairstyles, and can be worn neat, messy, up or down.
They've lost their childish association and now you're much more likely to see them gracing the red carpet atop the head of a glamorous celebrity.
From crown braids to fishtail plaits, there's a style to suit everyone and everywhere; for example, braided updos are a great alternative for a night out, while loose, messy plaits keep your look casual.
