We love this simple cascade braid by A Beautiful Mess — it’s perfect for a quick touch of styled class whether you’re rushed in the morning or just in need of that little something special to add to the perfect outfit.

The simplicity of this braid is staggering, since it’s just a French braid with the middle strand left to fall down your back. For those with finer hair, we suggest either pinning as you go or teasing before you braid and curling the ends after for an effortless hold. Hairspray can make this loose style look a tad too stiff. This style would do well after a day at the beach with the salt to hold it in place and those perfect beachy waves once your hair dries.

Try it out and tell us what you think!
