It’s safe to say that the more effortless a look is (no matter how long it really took to accomplish) the more it is sought after by women wanting to recreate the style. With summer officially here (yay!), we took to a few of our favorite It-girls; Olivia Munn, Shay Mitchell, and Chanel Iman, just to name a few, to see what beauty looks they’re trying (and slaying, tbh). One word: braids. The ultimate in casual-chic, a simple braid can create your entire look. Looking to stroll along the beach and not worry about your hair? French braids. Hitting a summer party and want to casually step up your game? Try a crown braid. Below are a few of our favorites, check ’em out!
Hailee Steinfeld remixed the half-up half-down hair style by adding reverse french braids up top.
Gigi Hadid can do no wrong in the fashion sphere. So when she added a long simple braid to her red tuxedo outfit her beauty cred went up too.Take note from model Chanel Iman, who glammed up her red carpet style with a fishtail braid.
