I have yet to meet a braid I didn’t like. Thank goodness, because they’re not going out of style anytime soon. From plump crowns worn by Iggy Azalea to wispy side plaits, there is something about braids that make them a solid staple. The current braid my favorite it-girls are wearing? A low-key and casual side braid. It’s perfect because it’s versatile, you can keep it sleek and tight or fatten it up and add some major volume, or even dress it up with a little black bow. So who is ready to get braiding? Click through to style notes to see some of my favorite looks. –– Michelle Rotbart

David bowie is known for his androgynous fashion choices and constant innovation. Like many women, he’s experimented with different colors, lengths, and textures. Whether his hair is long or short, wild or tame, he manages to look distinctly Bowie. His mid-length looks provide a plethora of creative options for ladies growing out their locks. His love of volume and swept back silhouettes makes his hairstyles slimming and bone-structure-enhancing. He always seems to be ahead of the trends, and knows how to take a classic shape and exaggerate it’s proportions until it feels fresh and new.
