The Sweet and Simple Braid on Diane Kruger

If your hair isn't long enough to pull off the Wang braid, try the mini version. A favorite among celebrities like Diane Kruger and Kate Bosworth, this braid is so simple you could do it with your eyes closed.

Devin’s How To: First, establish a side part and start braid at front corner of the part on the side with the most hair. When braiding, take hair from the side part and add it to one of the three sections of hair being braided. Once you pass the corner of the eye, add hair alternating from the hairline and the part. Continue to the nape of the head. Secure braided ponytail with an elastic, then repeat these steps on the other side of the part to make braids meet at the nape of neck. Allow loose ends of braids to flow into the rest of the hair.
