Wearing it up has seemed like the most practical option, but sometimes a plain ol' ponytail just doesn't seem to cut it. And with all the cool braided hairstyles trending this season, who really needs to right?

A simple braid on the side like Christina Milian's here, gives loose strands some instant edge. It also helps tame pesky baby hairs.

Struggling with frizz? Don't stress! Just pull strands back into a neat French braid like Nicole Richie's.

Looking for something a little edgier? Leave hair out, and try braiding three French braids in the front (one that goes down the middle and two on the side). Look how fierce Naya Rivera looked sporting this style!

When all else fails, try a classic fishtail braid. I love the way La La Anthony wears hers to the side.

This braided side pontail is probably one of the cooliest styles I've ever seen. Jessica rocked it with sleek, straight strands, but it would probably look even cooler with wavy or curly hair.

The mohawk-looking bump on Selena Gomez's fishtail braid definitely adds a fierce touch. It's the perfect style to rock when you're out dancing with the chicas.
