braid

Rope braids are twisted as they’re plaited, making them more dimensional than other braids, and less prone to flyaways. Adding a few of these braids to a simple bun adds texture and interest. A simple three-strand brand on the opposite side creates subtle asymmetry for a romantic style that appears windblown and loose but has enough support to last through a full day of festivities. Wear it to a wedding, birthday party, or picnic. Get step-by-step instructions in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Always poised and pampered and posh, Olivia Palermo looked like a modern-day fairytale princess at the New York City Ballet Spring 2015 gala. She stepped out in a flowing Valentino gown which she paired with a beautiful four-strand French braid. The entwine would make Rapunzel jealous. Besides the princess reference, this braid looks cool because it’s voluminous and airy and totally free-flowing. Certainly a look perfect for the summer. Care to try on this style?
