Teigen, WireImage; Caillat: Getty Images; Bareilles: WireImage Braids! Cute, little braids! Stars like Chrissy Teigen, Colbie Callait and Sara Bareilles are rocking bits of braids on the Grammys red carpet tonight. We're totally feeling this look, too: Braids are a laid back yet unexpected detail that can freshen up casually styled strands (as demonstrated by Chrissy and Sara) or be softly tucked into a bun (like Colbie). They also happen to be one of spring's biggest beauty trends.
You might be thinking, "But it's the Grammys! How is it okay to rock such perfect-for-the-gym hair on an awards-show red carpet?!?"
The trick, we noticed, to pulling off such a beachy (yet dressy) look at a formal event is to make the braids accents to your style, rather than the style itself. Bareilles, who rocked a handful of braids throughout her half-updo, cited inspiration from Katniss Everdeen. And to us at SELF, there's nothing like a strong, sexy girl. (And J. Law.) But we digress. Back to the braids.
