Halo braid, crown braid or milkmaid braid are all names for this popular braided up-do that never seems to go out of fashion. First worn by celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Ashley Olsen and Sienna Miller, the halo braid can be spotted on the runway, parties, weddings and festivities because of its versatility.
Halo braids can be dressed up with flowers or diamantes for a formal event or can simply be worn by themselves as a slightly messy look for that casual event.
So which celebrity has pulled off the halo braid with ease and style? Here are six of the best for inspiration for your next big event.
For a slightly different look this braid has been pushed towards the back of her head and Amanda Seyfried certainly looks like one stylish milkmaid. Nailed it.
Drew Barrymore can do no wrong and this halo braid is no exception. Even though it’s slightly messy, that’s the whole point and it works perfectly.

Taylor Swift’s rope-style halo braid is subtle, angelic and romantic, perfect for any occasion.
Sienna Miller was one of the first celebrities who stepped out with the halo braid and it’s no wonder that so many others followed suit. This gorgeous style would be perfect for a bride, teamed with some small flowers dotted around the braid.
Even with shorter hair Jaime King pulls off the halo braid so well. The thick braid has been cleverly crafted using plenty of quality product.
So who wore it best? They all look gorgeous but I’d have to say that Scarlett Johansson takes the prize for the best halo braid.
