I love the big poofy braids. <3

But I'm in love with the look that Jenna-maria posted.

How do you get your hair braided like at Dior this season, with the tiny little woven-like strands?

For example:

Thanks in advance!

if you already know how to do them, it's really easy to make them loose. I don't think you'll find a specific video on them simply because the videos are designed to teach people the technique of fishtail braiding, and making a loose fishtail follows the exact same technique, just using a few different methods. There are a few different ways to make your fishtail looser, just experiment and see which works best for you;

1.) take larger strands of hair from each side when you're doing the braiding. The smaller the strands, the tighter the braid, so using larger strands gives you a looser weave

2.) Don't tighten the braid as you go along. Weave with a very light hand and just kind of 'rest' each strand when you bring it to the middle, don't tighten it up.

3.) Once you've finished braiding and secured it with an elastic, start at the bottom of the braid, grab each side of the braid and pull the two sides away from each other. Keep doing this all the way up the braid until you have the desired loose effect.

Hope that helps

I think the best way to do a loose fishtail is #3. Do it correctly and loosen it up as you see fit.

Some people measure the passage of time by things like foliage or holidays, but around the WhoWhatWear.com office, our seasonal indicator is far more specific: we look for braids. Strange though it may seem, braids are an annual marker; as soon as the weather starts to warm up, they always pop up in some form or another. Over the past few years, we've documented the best braid trends, ranging from simple Heidi-style updos to intricate French iterations, as they appear on our favorite tastemakers. This year, the breakaway style is beyond simple, slightly slouchy, and took a starring turn on the spring runways: the side braid.

Originally created by the hair guru Guido as an accent for Alexander Wang's S/S 10 collection and later reinterpreted for Miu Miu's show, the side braid is truly an understated powerhouse. As you can tell from today's layout, the look is casually disheveled and perfectly imperfect, so there's not a lot of technique required. Guido did amplify the models' hair at the Wang show by applying Redken's Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse ($16) to their damp locks before rough drying. The foamy formula adds body, texture, and protects hair from lots of nasty things (such as humidity and heat styling, to name two). Personally, we also like to add a little dry shampoo to our dry hair before braiding for extra staying power; Rene Furterer's Naturia Dry Shampoo ($24) is all kinds of amazing. From there, you simply need to make a deep part (for the Alexander Wang look) or a center part (per the Miu Miu runway) and braid away! One styling note to consider: if you have lots of layers or simply need some additional anchoring, pull your hair into a low side ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic before starting your braid.

But enough with the how-to details, let's talk about the gorgeous ladies who are wearing this look! Thus far, the side braid's biggest supporter has been the one and only Nicole Richie. Seen here in Paris in late February for the launch of her Winter Kate line, she proves that the SB can work for day or night. In fact, we love the contrast of her lingerie-inspired navy slip dress with the earthy braid. (OASN: Riche's wearing a Winter Kate Damien Dress ($228); a print version is available now.) Earlier that month, British TV presenter Fearne Cotton modeled a more intricate version of the side braid, when she turned up at the Brit Awards after-party wearing a fishtail iteration and a customized vintage, polka dot dress from Minni's Closet.

Of course, the beauty of the side braid is how marvelous it looks as part of an off-duty look, as Jessica Biel and Alessandra Ambrosio demonstrate. Regarding the former, Biel was snapped at LAX wearing her side braid under a burgundy beanie; it's a cute combo that would also work nicely for a lazy weekend brunch with friends. In addition to wearing this hairstyle for traveling, it's also a swell low-key option for a beach day, as Ambrosio revealed a few weeks ago in Malibu. The Victoria's Secret Angel was snapped at the Malibu Lumber Yard looking like the epitome of Brazilian beach chic in a floaty Seneca Rising Aurore Top ($110) and a pair of Victoria's Secret Cheeky Shorts ($19.50). Her slightly messy side braid is the perfect compliment to her casual outfit and yet another example of why this trend is worth trying this spring and summer!

Re: Fishtail braids. Like people said, just loosen them but in order for it to look like the Dior ones, you have to do them in tiny pieces and it takes forever!
