Before the big chop, I loved a good Olsen twin/ Sienna Miller inspired halo braid. As the grow out process continues, I hadn't thought to try and recreate the look until I saw Kate Bosworth's amazing reception dinner braids (see after the break). I've got some layers going on in my locks, so can't manage sleeker versions of this style, but luckily for my fly-aways, I love the look of a slightly dishevelled braided crown.
Here is a helpful little video tutorial for creating a simple halo braid (by simple I do of course mean OMG amazing, how does she braid upside down so perfectly?). I've found that this style works best on 2nd or 3rd day hair, as squeaky clean locks can be a little slippery for braiding.
