This Fall, get cool with a hot new braided look, and get creative with it, because all sorts of braids are in.

I attribute this spreading style to The Hills’ starlet Lauren Conrad, who always seems to sport a braid or two. Braids combine the sleek and glamorous look of pulled-back hair with the low-key, more relaxed look of braiding, and what’'s not to love about low-maintenance style?

Braids are even showing up on runway models as they display up-and-coming trends, and they certainly compliment the clothes well.

So if you don’t feel like caving to the short-hair trends of late, pull yours back in a tight braid for a similar look, and help give your hair a makeover with this sexy new style.
