Braids are one of those hairstyles we always find ourselves turning to in times of need. They are easy to do, guaranteed to make you look more put-together than the usual wash-and-go, and appropriate for most, if not all, occasions.
Yes, everyone loves a good plait. And, as The Huffington Post points out, there's one in particular that's been popping up all over Hollywood and the red carpet: the rope braid. What makes this cascading, over-the-shoulder style stand out from the average braid is the undone, tousled nature of the look that manages to appear both laid-back and refined. This versatile style lends itself perfectly to Sunday brunch with friends or a fancy date night with bae. Check out the braided looks over at The Huffington Post, and feel free to use them as hairspiration for the weekend. (The Huffington Post)
