We Can’t Get Enough Of Regal Braids, the Red Carpet’s Latest Avant-Garde Trend

From pre-Raphaelite waves to regency era accessories, trends from way, way back are making their way into 2022. One of our favorite iterations of this tress-trend renaissance is the regal braid aesthetic. We’re simply obsessed with these ornate braided pieces. Incorporated into edgy, teased updos and sleek traditional ponies, decorative plaits are the perfect accessory. Nothing like a little 1800s glam to inspire your summer aesthetic. Here are six takes on regal braid hairstyles we’re vibing with this season.
