Lauren Conrad's BFF and hairstylist Kristin Ess shared this photos of a double braided updo. Although braids typically work best on medium to long hair, we think versions of this elegant French braid will work perfectly with longer bobs.

 Sporty gals will adore this inverted braided ponytail. Simply braid your hair in an inverted or Dutch braid, tugging some strands at the top to create added volume. Stop at the nape of the neck and tie off into a ponytail. Voila!

We admit this look might be a bit advance for the newbie braider, but trust us, this is one weave worth practicing. The Dutch braid flows down the length of the hair to create a snake-like effect. Cue swoons now!
