A Roundup of the Best Braids on Instagram!


Whether you’re into fishtail, dutch, waterfall or even ‘friendship’ styles (love this heart look by @braided_to_infinity!), everyone’s got a soft spot for pretty braids. Edgy, romantic, classic – there’s a look for every style. We scoured Instagram to find the best of the best. Get inspired and try a new braided look this weekend!


Fashion blogger @cath_belle rocks a classic fishtail braid. A fishtail is an effortlessly cool style, and actually not too difficult to get the hang of. Watch this YouTube tutorial by The Beauty Department to learn how to do it yourself.


This 5-strand braid by @creative.braids is too cute! If you love unique, one-of-a-kind braids, you need to check out this Instagram account!


@kaleyshair combines two of the hottest hairstyles of the moment: the topknot and a Dutch braid. Specifically, an upside-down Dutch braid. Obsessed with this look! Learn how to do it yourself by watching this YouTube tutorial.


From the messy hair to the casual braid to the flowy top, this boho-inspired look by @kassinka is gorgeous and perfect for something like an end-of-summer bonfire.


Love effortlessly messy hairstyles. Instead of finishing the braid, @blohaute left the ends out and turn it into a messy bun/braid hybrid!


In love with @NicholeCiotti’s double crown braid? Head over to her blog to see how she got the look!

Amber Heard

Amber Heard is one of the boldest fashion icons on the red carpet. She’s always eager to take interesting risks with her hair, makeup and fashion. Love this edgy braided updo she recently sported!


This half-braided buns look by @braidsbyjordan is easier to do than it looks. Simply braid 3 standard braids, twist them up into little buns and pin into place. Gorgeous.


Halo braids look gorgeous whether they’re small, medium or large! This interpretation by @__lipstickncurlss__ is showstopping.


This look by @tyler_whitley is arguably the most on-trend look on the list! Everyone’s into the undercut these days, but she takes it to the next level with immaculate, gorgeous braids.


Another casual take on a halo braid, @artikahairspa threw the rest of her hair into a messy bun. Love how this look can work for either day or night!


Love, love, love this romantic take on milkmaid braids by @rachellevalezuelaa. Paired with classic makeup (champagne eyes and a black wing), this is a beautiful look for a black tie occasion.


How cool is this look by @heatherchapmanhair?! Silver hair is still very in. Add an intricate braid to the mix, and you have an unforgettable hairstyle!


Cascading waterfall braid perfection by @intimhair! Want to get this look? Check out this tutorial!


Love anything that resembles a flower, like this ‘rose’ braid by @updobybuablink. What’s great about braids is how versatile they can be: edgy, romantic, girly, classic.
