You’ve Never Seen Braids Like This Before

Celebrities are owning the hair game with this hairstyle


You know a hair trend is taking off when It girls like Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid are sporting it in recent succession. The newest celebrity hair trend that has caught our attention is the parting braid – tiny plaits that sit in the parting, or where your hair part should be.

Iggy Azalea and Gigi Hadid rocked the "unicorn braid", which is slightly raised and poufy. This style also keeps your part clean and sleek.

We also love the sweet, dainty version as seen on Chiara Ferragni and Kate Bosworth. Braid a small, flat plait along your centre parting for this intricate hairstyle.

Parting braids work well for formal night looks as well. Scarlett Johansson wore hers with glam side-swept hair, while Diane Kruger upped her hair game by doubling down on braids.
