Miranda Cosgrove Models Spring's Hottest Braids. Here's How To Get The Look.

From a five-strand Dutch braid to a half-up boxed fishtail bun.

Braids are always on trend. We repeat, always. But one thing we sometimes struggle with is creating braided hairstyles that are modern and versatile. Thankfully, we've got much-needed inspiration from actress/singer Miranda Cosgrove on how to sport this season's hottest braids.

The former Nickelodeon star sat down in celebrity stylist Sarah Potempa's chair and had her brunette tresses transformed by combining classic plaits like the fishtail, Dutch and halo with interesting parts. Gently loosening up each braid helped to keep the looks fresh and prevent a severe effect that would make Cosgrove appear even younger. And clear elastic bands are a nice touch, too.

Scroll down to see how Potempa styles Cosgrove's hair in three different braid styles that are sure to turn heads. Tell us: which look is your favorite?
