15 Gorgeous Ways to Braid Hair This Fall

I couldn’t help but put together a little slideshow of my favorite fall braids. Braids are all the rage and have been for the past couple years. I sell a fabulous hairstyle book on Amazon called The Ultimate Hairstyle Handbook: Everyday Hairstyles for the Everyday Girl. If you want or need further step-by-steps of any of these tutorials, check out the book!

Here’s my roundup of 15 fabulous ways to braid your hair this fall.

    This is such a fun, flirty hairstyle. I've started with a French braided fishtail on the far side near my ear. Once I got to the nape of my neck, I started an alternative braid and left out the front section of hair so that from the front, this style looks like all my hair is left down.

    I absolutely adore this hairstyle. You take two sections from the front and secure them in back with a clear elastic. Then make a little topystail out of it by pulling the tail up and through the gap that's between your scalp and your elastic. Then do a simple fishtail. I pulled out the pieces and made it look extra messy!

    This is a great style when you need some extra volume in your hair. I just teased my roots and gathered the heavy section in front and braided. When I got near the end, I took out a small piece and wrapped it around the hair and tied off with a clear elastic.

    This is another great style to wear when your hair isn't super clean. Take two sections of hair from the front, braid them and then pull on the sections to loosen the braids making them flat and pancake like. Secure with clear elastics. Then drape one side across the head, secure with bobby pins, and repeat on other side.

  • The Alternative Braid 9 of 16

    This is the hairstyle I go to 9 times out of 10. It loves dirty hair, and it's so feminine because your hair is in front and near your face. This braid is literally easier than a regular braid because ... well ... there's no braiding involved! If you are hair-challenged, this one is for you. Go check out the tutorial using the link below.

  • Braided Ponytail 10 of 16

    Busy carpool day? Pull it back in a pony. Before you do though, give two sections in the front a regular braid and secure back with your ponytail. Easy as that!

  • Braided Bun 11 of 16

    This is such an elegant hairstyle. Pull all the hair up in a ponytail and leave out two sections under your ears near the nape of your neck. Braid them, loosen them, and then tie them off with a clear elastic. Now release the ponytail and roll the hair under, securing with a few large bobby pins. Then you're just going to wrap the braids around the roll to finish off. If that was confusing, check out the tutorial in the link below!

    This is a super fast style. Start from one side and French braid around your head. Angle the braid towards the top of your ear. Tie off with an elastic and pull up into a messy bun.  

  • Dutch Headband Braid 13 of 16

    This is a great style to get those bangs out of your face. I've just started above my ear on one side and am Dutch French braiding up and over. A Dutch French braid is exactly like a regular French braid, only instead of braiding the outer strands over the middle, you're going to braid them under.  Tie off with a clear elastic and then push a bobby pin through the elastic to keep the tail from pouffing out!

    I love how fun and carefree this style is. It's so schoolgirl-inspired to me. I've just Dutch French braided two braids and tied them together at the bottom! Make sure to pull on the sections to loosen the braid and make it look fuller.

Whatever your plans are this fall, I hope you’re able to get creative with some of these hairstyles and add some new ‘dos into your routine!
