Hot on the heels of my last celebrity hair trend obsession: dip-dye (so passe I know, I know!), here is my latest favourite celebrity inspired hair trend: Braided Up-dos.

A whole host of celebrities have been wearing braided up-dos on the red carpet and out and about and I love them!

Drew Barrymore Braided Up-do

First of all is my all-time celebrity hair hero, Drew Barrymore wearing a gorgeously undone messy braided up-do. Perfect from the front and the back!

Earlier this year, Drew inspired me to dye my blonde hair ginger if you fancy a peek at the pics!

Next up is a lady, whose style I normally find a wee bit confusing if I’m honest, Leona Lewis.

How perfect is Leona’s Lewis’ fishtail braided hairstyle? I love this! And I think it would actually be do-able seeing as the back is a regular french braid. This is definitely a braided style I will be trying to recreate on myself!

A few years ago Jennifer Aniston wore a braided fringe to the Oscars and Busy Philips chose an updated version to wear to this year’s SAG Awards. A braided fringe is my summer hair saviour, it’s perfect for disguising greasy roots, is super quick and easy to do and actually looks quite fancy!

Nicole Richie braided up-do

I not-so-secretly love Nicole Richie’s style and love the braided up-do that she’s been wearing out and about recently – so cute!

Last up is Jessica Alba showing off a gorgeously sophisticated braided up-do, perfect for a black-tie event and the lovely Elizabeth Olsen wearing the simplest side braided hairstyle, that looks just fantastic!
