The braid has been around for ages, yet it’s eternally cool. Braids adapt to hair regardless of type or length and are featured prominently among the fashionable set, on and off the red carpet. The latest trend to sweep Hollywood is the crown braid (also called the halo or milkmaid braid). Beyoncé and Lea Michele (above) are just a handful of celebs whose plaits have helped make the style feel current. And the simplest of braids, the three strand plait, continues to be a classic, whether in a low-slung style like Kim Kardashian‘s or in an updated arrangement like Jamie King’s reverse weave. If you’re in the market for a change, look no further than Kelly Osbourne’s safety pin mohawk!
