Braided hair styles have always been popular and fall 2016 is no exception. This season, the braids are a little looser and a little more funky than some past seasons, which is great because some of us aren't great at getting our hair to cooperate. We turned to Pinterest to find the 10 best of the braided hairstyles to try out this autumn. So channel your inner Elsa and Rapunzel and see how a braid can elevate even the simplest of hairstyles to looking like you put a lot of time and effort into it!
1. Boxer Braids
Boxer braids give a modern twist to the little pigtails from your childhood. You won't feel like Pippi Longstockings with these braids!
2. Braided Mohawk
Get a mohawk without the commitment of shaving your head. They look really cool especially when they are a little bit messy and looser so you don't have to worry about making it perfect.
3. Side Braid Ponytail
This side braid into a pony tail takes both trends of the season into one! It doesn't take too much time to add a little braid to your low pony but it takes the look to a whole new level.
4. Multi-braided bohemian style
This one has a few different braids all in one but it makes a beautiful combination to embrace the bohemian style.
5. Tight braids pulled into a bun
These braids pull all the hair away from the face and off the neck and you can change up the look with a different number of braids depending on personal preference.
6. Not your typical braid
These braids have been popping up all over Pinterest and for good reason, they look super cool! It's a neat trick that looks like a braid but is actually done by pulling pieces around adn using elastics.
7. Lived in Crown Braid
This look is for those of us with uncontrollable frizz. Instead of fighting it, embrace it! It looks awesome and won't make you spend a small fortune on hairspray!
8. Mermaid Braids
Not sure if you could call this a fishtail braid, but it definitely looks like something a mermaid would wear!
9. Half-up Braids
If you don't want to commit to the full boxer braids, why not try out this half up look that is a little more easy going and super pretty?
10. Side Braid
Embrace your inner Katniss Everdeen and pull all your hair to the side and braid it down. Really good for those days when your hair won't cooperate and you just need to force it to do something cool.
