Celebrity Hairstyles: Best and Worst Braids
See which A-listers look hot rocking these trendy twisted hairstyles and who missed the mark entirely
No matter the braided style you choose to try, here are a few quick tips on making any braid look perfect:
Tip 1: To create a sleek braid, comb through your hair first to smooth out any knots or tangles. Then apply a bit of shine-enhancing pomade to get rid of flyaways.
Tip 2: To create a messier braid, curl all of your hair before braiding with a large barrel iron then backcomb the curls slightly to create that messy volume.
Tip 3: After finishing any braid, spritz with flexible hairspray to help the look last. You can also add an accessory to your braids to up their cool-factor -- try a leather headband or glitzy flower pin.
One warning: not all braids are created equal … if they're not done well, they can look super sloppy or like a prom hairstyle gone wrong, quickly becoming a bad hair day for you. Take a look at the best and worst braided celebrity hairstyles that have graced Hollywood's red carpet.
