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.

What makes this example special is the the windblown, rumpled feel created by the looseness and breadth of the braid.

Braids are so easy to create that it’s easy to forget how chic they can be. Sure they’re great for beach days and festivals, but they also hold their own on the red carpet and in the office. This tightly cinched braided headband paired with glossy waves nods at earthiness, but the sleek finish elevates it.
