Gigi Hadid's Latest Hairstyle Will Give You a Serious Confidence Boost

Updated 01/27/18

We're going to put something out there: There's a new way to power dress, and it's got nothing to do with clothes. Instead of shoulder pads (or, you know, something less '80s), the way to give yourself a boost and make yourself feel more confident is to adopt a high braid. Witness how Ariana Grande always wears her hair up, giving the impression that she's a bit taller. 

And now Gigi Hadid has put a twist on this look by opting for a plait pulled up high on her head. When visiting the Tommy Hilfiger pier carnival during New York Fashion Week, the added height of the hairstyle gave Hadid an even more statuesque look, and it meant that she didn't even need a jacket or heels to pull her outfit together.

The real beauty of this look is the juxtaposition of texture—sleek around the face with the wispy braid. While it's high glamour it can totally be worn as a casual look too.

To re-create the look, use a brush to slick your hair back off your face into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Next, braid the ponytail, securing with another elastic at the end. Using your palms, gently roll the braid between your hands to give it that lived-in look. Mist with hairspray. Keep scrolling to see the products we'd use to re-create this look.
