If you’re someone who loves braided hairstyles, here are different types of messy braids that you can try to channelize your inner Daenerys.

If you’re a fan of both ponytails and braids, this is a hairstyle you should opt for. All you gotta do is wear your hair into a ponytail and braid one section of the ponytail into a messy braid. Don’t forget to tease the rest of the hair for a messy look!

Who said messy braids can look gorgeous only when you wear them well done? Try the tousled milkmaid braids à la Jennifer Lawrence—a hairstyle that’ll be perfect especially if your tresses are heavily layered or textured.

This could either be a rope braid, a fishtail braid or basic 3 strand braid. Tightly plait it from one side and tease it using a fine-tooth comb. You can doll up the braid further by accessorizing it with flower clips!
