15 impossibly chic celebrity braids for every event in your calendar

Where to wear these drool-worthy celebrity braids »

Braids and summer seem to go hand in hand. Sure, you can opt for other summer-worthy hairstyles but somehow we keep going back to sweet, sweet braids, time and time again. What’s better is that celebrity braids have been getting more glamorous and unique each season, leaving us mesmerized and needing to try them out.

Braids have been a part of our lives forever, from sporting cute pigtails during our elementary school days to trying out the latest trend (Waterfall! Fishtail! Mermaid!) for prom, the look is one hairstyle that just never gets old. Casual or glam, you can always count on a good braid or two to take you from day to night.

In the spirit of summer, we’re all about experimenting with new hairstyles, and up next on our list is each and every one of these celebrity braids. So if you’re tired of the same old French braid, fear not. We’ve rounded up 15 of the best celebrity braids (from Blake Lively’s ponytail hybrid to Rihanna’s Amazonian braid) and shared where to wear each one this season. Whether you’re looking for a braided hairstyle suited for a dinner date or something quick and easy when you’re biking around the city, we’ve got the celebrity braid for you. So for nostalgia’s sake, it’s time to call up your besties for a night of braiding and gossip. Don’t believe us when we say there’s a braid for every event?
