Celebrity Hair Trend Alert

Celebrities Are Loving the Side Braid Lately.

Goodbye sleek updos, hello messy side braids! It seems A-listers have fallen for a new casual cool, boho chic hair trend and we're totally digging it. From flirty fishtails to fabulous french braids, we love how this look is perfect for day or night.

Well Miss Miley Cyrus was spotting rocking one in LA yesterday at the 2011 CNN Heroes All Star Tribute and frankly, we're obsessed! She adds just the right amount of messy to make her braid look effortlessly glam. Try this look at your next school dance for a boho chic, but dressed-up party do.

You can easily copy this style Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are wearing if you have very long hair or medium length hair. Extensions can be added, or a clip on long pony tail can be worn if you have short hair that is long enough to be put in a pony tail – but don’t go to overboard!

Here’s how to copy the side braid:

The trick to copying this look is make it look undone and messy – loose pieces can fall out and the braid doesn’t have to be perfect (how easy is that!?).

Start with pulling you hair loosely to the side and begin braiding, leave about 2-3″ of hair at the end so that the braid doesn’t get too skinny.

Secure the hair with a clear hair elastic (try Sephora Snag-Free Hair Elastics, $3.50 for a set of 8). If you have some large chunks of hair falling out, you can secure them with a pin – but remember to keep it loose and cool!

Finish of with a cute hair accssesorie like a clip on flower or a headband.
