Here comes the Braid...

Long-haired brides, you're in luck...
Short-haired brides, time to start growing out your hair (or splurge on extensions)

because these pretty plaits are here to stay:

...From Prada to Miu Miu to Alexander Wang, the Braid has evolved from street-wear casual to high-End Runway. Whether you are thinking loose curls, or teased up-do's.

add a little braid into it!

wear it down...

leave it long and keep it simple with a sexy side french braid.
feeling parisian? try the long side braid also known as the "milkmaid" braid. Not only does it have a soft natural look to it... it looks great against a one shoulder gown. Looking for something a little riskier? try the fish plait braid, its a version of the 'french braid' with a harder technique, but a more high end look. Everyone will be wondering how you did it!

braid it up..

think a braid + a headband is too much. think again. as seen on many stars. Nicole Richie, Anne Hathaway & Jessica Alba, the up-do braid is a stress free style. want to add a little more romance? Try a teased braided pony tail wrapped up in a thin head band. braid the bangs, or better yet add some modern knots and twists for a hippy-chic look.
