Messy braids are all the rage. 

Forget free flowing locks. It's all about the braid. Not a super tight schoolgirl constructed braid. We're talking a braid that's looks like the result of a roll around in the hay.

Ariana Grande is a major fan having sported an array of braided looks in the past. 

Jessica Chastain showed off an intricately braided style while attending the 2015 Critics' Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday, Jan. 15 in Los Angeles, where she snatched the Critics' Choice MVP Award.

The actress wore a white form-fitting Antonio Berardi Spring 2015 gown complete with colorful beads on the bodice. Her messy fishtail braid was the perfect compliment to this sleek look.

Emily Blunt worked a braided-back look at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 11 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. while wearing a custom Michael Kors pleated gown.

But the real head turner at the Globes was Jared Leto. The actor and singer rocked a messy fishtail with a white blazer. Unlike the man bun, the braid is a constructed option and we think really suited his tailored look.

See, even Meryl Streep applauds him.
