Pigtail braids have become a go-to hairstyle among celebrities for the past few months. Let Tracee Ellis Ross’ serve as proof that the minimalist style can still look very chic, especially when teamed with a sophisticated blazer.@traceeellisross
Baby braids owned Instagram this summer, but the Margot Robbie-approved trend is just as perfect for fall. The nostalgic hairstyle pairs nicely with a cozy knit dress and a new pair of over-the-knee boots.@justinemarjan
Coi Leray braids are majorly trending. For the uninitiated, they’re jumbo knotless braids that take so much less time than standard box braids — and they look next-level cool.@dsybhair
Compared to Tracee Ellis Ross’s low pigtail braids, Dua Lipa’s high ones are a more playful take on the trend. Still, only a little effort is required to make the look your own. @dualipa

Sometimes less is more. For the 2021 Met Gala, Margaret Qualley embraced her natural texture. All celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak did was section the star’s hair in two, braid it, and leave soft pieces out around the face. @ mararoszak
So fresh and so clean, neatly parted cornrows, or their more elaborate counterparts feed-in braids or stitch braids, are so simple yet so stunning. The pulled back style allows for the wearer’s face to really stand out which is basically every beauty minimalist’s goal.@eboneedavis
Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan is known for sharing easily re-creatable styles with her fans. This braid for Dorit Kemsley — styled with luxe-looking gold accessories — is no exception.@ justinemarjan
Braided ponytails were all over the NYFW runway shows, and even had their shine off the catwalk. This sleek style is as simple as it gets and proves the point that less is definitely more (at least when it comes to braided hairstyles). @laurapolko's profile picture laurapolko
