There's no denying braids were HUGE this year: waterfall, dutch, 5-strand, side—they took over the runways, Pinterest, and tons of how-to videos on YouTube, but one stood out from the rest: Blake Lively's amazing fishtail. Her flirty, woven, pony was the perfect complement to her custom yellow Gucci dress and those turquoise statement earrings? AMAZING.

Rainbow-streaked locks were also a big hit this year! Lauren Conrad was one of the first to try them out and celebs like Ashley Tisdale and Demi Lovato were soon to follow suit.

Stars like Miley and Rihanna decided to take it all off this year—on the side of their heads. Rih went for a one-sided look, while Miley rocked two shaved patches and although this look might not be for everyone, one thing is a definite plus: less time required to get ready in the A.M.!
