The coolest braid for fall is a tight and sleek, a small three-strand plait worn clean and neat. There are lots of ways you can wear this trend: pull all hair into a single plait, wear one as an accent, or add a few, evenly spaced, along the front hairline. The thin plaits have a clean, rope-like feeling, a little tough while still feeling pretty. Learn to create slender, shiny braids in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
