Side braids

Ever since Alexander Wang put them in his Spring 2010 runway show, side braids seem to be everywhere these days. Aren't they gorgeous? It would be such an easy look for summer brunches and bike rides.

These are adorable! I've been doing side braids lately - they are so easy when I'm having a bad hair day!

Rachael said...

I have never been able to braid my own hair...I'm hopelessly uncoordinated! I guess I'll be sticking with the classic ponytail.

Melanie's Randomness said...

Ohhh I have really long hair. I should give this a try!!!

Simply Mel said...

One of my favorite looks...so sweet and innocent, with a side of sexy!

Signorina Svizzera said...

i love these and have been doing them a lot- a lifesaver when your hair's a bit dirty...hehe
sadly, my hair isn't as long as these girls so it's not as glam on me :)

bokdama said...

It is just a question of growing my hair long enough and thick enough really fast! Easy peasy.
I love this look!

Jessie said...

Aren't they lovely? I've been wearing my hair like that since the show last Fall! It quite effortlessly chic. Is it sad that I'm enjoying my hair getting longer because it makes my braid look better?

anna k. said...

Supercute - i just wish my hair was this long!

Lyndsey said...

I love braids! At my sisters wedding we all had some! I think my favorite is the mermaid tail or something like that. Simply gorgeous.

BarceloMIA said...

Love it! So effortlessly chic.... you need to have very long hair though... :)

Joanna said...

So sweet and yet sexy at the same time.

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

Even my straight braids are a little lop-sided.
We beachy belles have to braid to stand the heat.
Glad to know I'll be in fashion.

Love Cup of Jo!

!Tb0n3! said...

They are so lovely!

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, sweet and sexy at the same time, for sure. there's definitely a bedhead vibe to them! :)

Hannah Sadie said...

I love this look, it's so soft and feminine. Unfortunately my hair is barely long enough to get into a pony tail, so I'll have to wait a while to try it out. There's always extensions haha.

rachel / Red Lips Vintage said...

can't wait to have my hair long...braids inspire me to keep growing!

Chrissy said...

The protagonist in my spanish soap had the side braid on for millions of scene. It looked lovely on her, but me not so much ha

Francine said...

I saw an article about them in this month's Vogue. I can't wait until my hair gets to the right length so that I can do it! I'm almost there...

Cassandra said...

I love side braids. I'm waiting for my hair to grow back out from my last chop, but I wear these regularly...

Eva / Sycamore Street Press said...

i happen to be wearing my hair this way right now! (although i don't look nearly as becoming as these models:)

Hope Chella said...

These are so pretty and in style now. I've been seeing this look a lot recently and love it :)

rachel said...

good thing I wear side braids a lot.......also the 'how genetics work' photo is great...and it's fun seeing your belly grow.

Erika F said...

love love love braids - i dedicated one of my blogs to braids - check it out :o) http://tiptoebutterfly.blogspot.com/2010/01/braid-fevah.html

Yuck. Does no one think they look like the girls on the compound in Big Love?

(Is this a mean comment? I didn't intend it to be...just offering an opinion.)

Joanna said...

haha, anonymous, i can see your point, but i still really love them! :)

battlingthedinosaurs said...

this is why i'm waiting for my hair to grow out

Sal said...

Indeed! They make me wish my hair was long enough to braid ...

Sara Ballstaedt said...

GORGEOUS!

I want that hair!!

Mary said...

I have always wanted to grow my hair out long enough to pull off one of these long, thick braids, but usually when summer rolls around I end up cutting off all my hair so that my neck can breathe. Maybe someday I will have the patience to grow out my hair.

SimplyTara said...

I'm wearing a side braid right now!
love them!

This totally makes me want to grow out my hair, just so I can do this!

Naurnie said...

ok, now i'm getting excited that my hair is getting long.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I have been wearing my hair like this all winter. So very easy! Love it!

Hip Hip Gin Gin said...

Love these! Will definitely be trying them come summer!

Danielle said...

ugh, I used to wear my hair like this everyday! but then, last march I chopped it all off (16 inches! gasp!). I can't wait for it to be long again!!

victoria martin said...

grow hair, grow!

Margaret said...

I wear my hair in side braids all the time, but I have to say, I don't think my hair looks as nice as those pictures. Well, it looks NICE, but not nice and sexy like those girls!

Meghan said...

Love love love the side braid. I feel like my hair ends up like this at the end of each work day!!
:)

oneshotbeyond said...

Those are gorgeous! :-)

Rachel Dangerfield said...

These are gorgeous! It makes me sad that I'm chopping some hair off this weekend... eek!

"Julie" said...

I'm such a side braider! In fact, I have a side braid today! love them!

Kristin said...

Love them. I sported one on Christmas day!!

Gina @ A bit of whimsy! said...

Great idea for my daughter. She loves them!

Anda said...

Insanely gorgeous. Now I just need to grow my hair two more feet!

Sarah Swift said...

if i only had that much hair...sigh...

Melina said...

I wish I hadn't just gotten layers, now random pieces keep falling out! Love this look!

bussbuss said...

lovely! maybe i'll try this today. this whole ponytail thing is getting old (my poor hubs).

that reminds me of a funny 'thank you note' bit on jimmy fallon: "thank you ponytails for making girls' heads look like horses butts."

so funny and kind of an a-ha moment, as, hello, that's where "ponytail" comes from, but in 31 years, i never really thought of it that way.

Jay Tee said...

My hair refuses to grow fast enough. Though today, I've had two people tell me my hair is looking long--I must be on my way!

Side braids, here I come!

A Taste of T said...

LOVE the side braid!

victoria.renee said...

love the braids! i wish my hair was just a teensy bit longer. how do those gorgeous girls they pull off messy and chic at the same time?

Yoli said...

I used to wear them all the time when I was younger. Love them.

caton morris said...

love this look, I will definetly be sporting it for the AZ summer

Michelle said...

ha ha I'm obsessed with side braids. In fact, I never cut my hair very short because then I couldn't do side braids.

mandyface said...

I'm sold!

Kwil said...

*wishes her hair to grow faster, stronger, longer*


I miss my long hair so so much now. damned those spontaneous hair cuts!

♥alicia said...

Love the sidebraid, I've actually tries to pull it off at my office! haha

Karen Dickey said...

this is so funny! i was watching dr. quinn, medicine woman last night (shh, don't tell) and was admiring michaela's side braid! haha.

laura said...

Funny, I loved the sidebraid a few years ago and with my curly hair it worked well--a nice thick loose braid---but, I a few weeks ago I had it straightened with a Brazilian Kertatin treatment and now it's so straight and smooth that the braid simply will not hold and looks really messy as opposed to "staged" messy. It figures that for once in my whole life I'd get in on a hair trend only to miss out on one even more current and a lot less expensive! ;)

Sera said...

i totally sported one the other day! love em!

Juultje said...

unfortunately my hair is not long enough, but I love the look.

Marta said...

I'm growing my hair out...wonder if it is already long enough do a side braid? They are lovely!

Kel said...

I did a post on hair trends, side braids (or plaits) are hot right now!
They look fantastic.
The messier the better

Joanna Goddard said...

karen, that's hilarious! :)

Laurie Jones said...

I've seen the side braid in Lucky and also Christina Hendricks of NY magazine, it's a very feminine look! If only I had long hair! :(

MaryBeth Hughes said...

my sister just sent me a photo of a side braid like these. she thought it would be fun look for my bridesmaids. love it, makes me happy for summer.

Anne @ The City Sage said...

I do love the look of the side braids on these models. And I do have very long hair that allows me to wear styles like these.

But I am also very neurotic, and when I put the side braid in, I start to feel like my head is heavily weighted to one side. It drives me CRAZY! I inevitably have to take it out and put it in a perfectly centered ponytail instead...

Apt. #34 said...

mmm, agreed. If only I had long hair!

Morgan said...

I love them! My boyfriend told me I looked like I was from the eighties but I loved it.Clearly he doesn't know fashion. :)

LINDSAY said...

I love the look, but SADLY my braids are slightly anorexic compared to these girls'.

Tammie Lee said...

I so agree, I love braids, then endure all sorts of fashions and there are so many ways to braid our hair!

Sundari said...

I so wish I didn't have my hair short anymore!

Jane Flanagan said...

So endearing!

Caitlin said...

I kind of resent the new love for side braids, simply because I have been wearing the style for years now. But I guess if it looks good, everyone should have been doing it all along!

@mynicole said...

hot hot hot. love the braids.

miss esther said...

these remind me of rapunzel-love the fairytale braids :)

LD said...

Love side braids! I used to love wearing them as a kid...so glad they're back. I will have to grow my hair a bit longer now! Nice trend spotting!

Sarah said...

It makes me want to grow my hair out! Although my hair would need to be a lot thicker to look like that. Still, such a cute and simple style!

HeatherClark said...

yes i really like them! I just wore one in my last photoshoot for my blog and will definitely be sporting it come spring

upatreecupatea said...

The side braid and I are best friends. I have crazy, wavy long mermaid hair so they work wonders...especially if I haven't wash my hair in a few days!

love love love your blog. I read it almost everyday :)

Destination Inspiration said...

I had such long hair for years and then cut it short. I've been regretting that decission ever since I saw these models! I love the long side braid look!

nareswari anindita said...

o my gosh,
i was posting the same thing!
http://halfbarefoot.blogspot.com/2010/02/thursday-obsession_17.html
i agreeeee!!

Bri said...

my life is braids pretty much everyday and the side braid is my favorite to sport. i work with 2nd graders 6 hours a day, so braids are the way to go =)

lionqueen said...

really nice but you need really long and thick hair, otherwise it looks like pigtails

Rebecca (Dog-Eared) said...

awesome. i think i'll be growing my hair out now..!

graceful nichole said...

This is the only hairstyle I can do with my long hair to get it out of my face and not give me a headache!!!! I love the variations though, sooo pretty!

The Fabulous Ru Blog said...

I love this look. My friend Joey actually has an instructional video on an easy way to make a messy side braid. take a look!

http://www.thefabulousrublog.com/2010/01/get-messy-side-braid-look-with-joey.html

Nimue said...

They look lovely! it's a shame my hair isn't long in enough yet, but i'm saving :)

Alyssa Ballisty Photography said...

I'm loving the side braid, I just wish I could pull it off!

Ayla said...

my favorite! I just need my layers to grow out a bit so they don't stick out all over the place leaving my braid looking like a floppy hairy fish ....er....something?!
But, you inspired me.
I'm gonna try it today for work and see how it turns out this time. :)

jamieofalltrades said...

I've worn braids to two parties in the last month and everyone compliments them. Love braids.

Lalipourie said...

I just need my hair to be a little longer and I can do this! I love braids!

Elisabeth Adele said...

I love this look. It has sort of a hippie, 60's,ultra laid back feel and it just works!

Camille said...

This post reminds me of one by Garance Doré...

Brooke Premo said...

I love me a side braid. I have been rocking them lately, as my hair is just now long enough.

But I must say, all credit must be given to Jane Seymour as Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman for the overall popularity of the side braid!
