It’s no secret that editors love a good braid. So anytime we spot a plait trend we’re obsessing over, we have to immediately share it with you. And thanks to Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia Palermo and Sarah Hyland, we now bring you the perfect braid to wear in between washes. (You know, when all you have time for is some dry shampoo and a four-second fix.)

Hudgens (the queen of the messy side braid) teamed her low-key hairstyle with a very glam Monique Lhuillier at the Gimme Shelter premiere in N.Y.C. It’s so loose it’s almost a pony, but a few tucked-in strands put this squarely into “super-loose side braid” territory. Next, Olivia Palermo teamed her relaxed plait with a menswear-inspired look at the “Notes On Creativity” exhibition in N.Y.C., while Sarah Hyland got her side-sweep on for a visit to Sirius XM radio.

This look is easy to crib and feels like a fresh departure from the popular crown plaits we’ve been seeing from stars. How about you? Will you be trying the look? Or is it a bit too undone?
