From the Kardashians to Rita Ora, check out these looks for serious braid inspiration!

Celebrity hair braids

Braids are seriously big right now and it’s a HUGE trend in the celebrity hair world too.

The plaited look became popular again last year and it has since become a favourite style with a host of our favourite stars.


Fancy trying hair braids for yourself? Check out our gallery of the best star looks below for some major plaiting inspiration!

From the Kardashians to British stars like Rita Ora and Jess Glynne, it seems that almost everybody who is anybody is working pigtails right now.

Kim Kardashian was one of the early adopters of the trend and has often been seen out and about with her long dark tresses plaited by her sides.

The rest of her family have also become big fans of the look. Sister Khloe Kardashian likes to wear her blonde mane in tight braids and can’t resist showing it off on social media.

Oh and even the family’s famous kids are already in on it too. Check out North West and Penelope Disick with their little plaits – aren’t they adorable?

It’s not just the Kardashians who are into braiding though. For a particularly colourful take on the trend, look no further than Rita Ora – we love her bright yellow tresses!

Katy Perry, meanwhile, has gone for the polar opposite of this concept and opts for striking jet black braids with a distinctly gothic vibe going on.

Looking for something even more intricate? Lauren Goodger is working a rather complex-looking array of braids in an Instagram photo showing the back of her mane.

‘Got my hair in braids,’ the TOWIE star wrote alongside the picture of her summery new style.
