11 Incredible Braided Hairstyles for Every Hair Type

Braid hairstyles aren't just for kids who have dance class or a love of re-creating Elsa's hair in Frozen (although we're not ashamed to admit that her braid is fabulous), oh no. They are now completely adult-proof and acceptable to wear at various events. In fact, over the past few years or so, we've noticed a real trend on the red carpet, and at other star-studded events, for many a celeb to sport a plait or two. During fashion week, we spotted Gigi Hadid wearing this incredible high braid in New York, and Olivia Palermo looked amazing and totally chic with her double-fishtail style in London.

As you can tell, braids are well and truly back on our radar. And despite braids traditionally being a summer go-to, we now see them as a 365 hairstyle. So, to help you decide which kind of braid you should go for, we've compiled a list of the best A-list braid hairstyles. Whether that's a fishtail braid on Blake Lively (she wears it the best), a double french plait on Sienna Miller, or pigtail braids on über-cool singer Janelle Monáe, we've hunted down many celeb looks to give you some inspiration.
