Bedhead. "It" girl. Model-off-duty. The tousled, undone hairstyle that's been all over our Instagram feeds goes by many names, all evocative of its effortlessly sexy vibe.

For the first 20-something years of my life, I wore many sock buns. As a dancer, it was something I could wear to keep my hair out of my face that also added some more oomph to skimpy strands.

Not sure how to Dutch braid? Buckle up, my friends. You're about to learn.
Dutch braids, a cousin of the French braid, have been around forever. They are the perfect hairstyle when you want your hair out of your face, while looking timeless and a bit edgy. Double Dutch braids, also known as boxer braids, have been making a major impact lately, thanks the Kardashian clan. Khloe, Kim and Kylie are often spotted rocking the dual-braided 'do. A Dutch Braid is basically an inverted French Braid; the three strands of hair are woven under each other instead of over -- resulting in the braid sitting on top of the hair instead of being woven into it. These versatile braids look ultra-chic in the gym, at brunch, or on the red carpet.
