This is a chunkier, thicker version of the trendy braided headband. Disheveled, whimsical, the style exudes a fun and youthful vibe for girls about town. Braids are great for summer as they keep hair off the face, but forgo the formality of traditional updos. What makes this example special is the the windblown, rumpled feel created by the looseness and breadth of the braid. For similar beatnik elegance, pull out random pieces till you get a pleasingly carefree aesthetic. Click for StyleNotes →
