We consider ourselves “wash and go” types around here. Between work, errands, the gym, a social life, and any semblance of sleep, there’s not a whole lot of time left in the mornings to worry about an intricate hairstyle. For most of us, minimal product and a quick blow dry constitute a good hair day. But with summer humidity just around the corner, a new look is in order.
It seems lately that wherever we turn, women have moved away from layers of curling-iron perfected curls and have opted instead to twist their hair out of their face and into a braid – with different styles producing a multitude of results. Once reserved for young schoolgirls, our favorite blogs, magazines, and tastemakers have sung the praises of this low maintenance hairstyle. Call it the “Katniss Effect”: A busy, badass chick needs a quick, reliable look.
Whether you're pulling off a pony tail braid, a side braid, a messy braid, it's in. It's a simple look, section hair into three parts and braid. Its quick, it can be messy, but it'll still look good. Featured on stars below:

Ideally, I'd like to braid Hermès scarves into my hair, too; but that would require a billionaire boyfriend and a miracle from Naomi Campbell's hairstylist. But enough about her - Karlie Kloss is relinquishing her supremacy over Vogue editorials in order to take over the Spring 2010 campaigns for Hermes and Dior. What is a 17-year-old supermodel supposed to do with all of her glamorous earnings? Get her driver's license and a silver Land Rover, of course. I hear she's enjoying every minute of being a ‘"normal" teen - that is, until she takes her best gal pals down the magazine aisle.
