8 Summer-Ready Braids To Rock Right Now

Braids: It's a love that will never die. Just when we think that we are oh-ver braids for real this time, one of our favorite celebs seems to show up somewhere with a new plait that re-ignites our fever. We love how there seems to be a braided hairstyle for every mood, from rebellious (Cara at the Met) to sweet (Freida's Pinto's glam crown) to blasé (K. Stew, fishtail braiding like she just don't care).
Plus, we can't forget that summer is a-coming — a time when we all want to ditch our blowdryers and flat irons for cute 'dos that will (hopefully) look cuter as they become frizzydisshelved in the summer steam.
Click through to check out the latest and greatest celeb spins on the humble plait — we bet that your your fingers will be itching to get weaving again!
