Are baby braids making a comeback after Euphoria star dons the look?

Baby braids, they were here for a split second before it seemed they disappeared from us, but boy did they have a good run.

However, it seems that the adorable hair trend is making its welcome return and it’s all thanks to none other than Sydney Sweeney.

A trendsetter in her own right, Sydney has brought back our new go-to easy hair hack.

Giving Y2K meets girl next door, the hair style sees a micro braids up-do with added extra large school clips.

The Euphoria actress took to Instagram to share snaps from her latest campaign for Samsung, but that was not what had people talking – it was her hair.

As you can see from the snaps, the blonde bombshell has her hair in a slicked back bun with a sharp middle part.

This look is nothing new, as I’m writing this, I have it in. The difference with Sydney’s is that she has two tiny face-framing baby braids coming from the crown of her head.

Bringing them forward to her hairline, the look is instantly given more dimension and the two clips she has added on each side are nothing more than a fun accessory.

With the hair speaking for itself, Sydney went for a glam but natural make up look and a co-ord gingham skirt and shirt combo.

So how do we recreate the look?

Grab a small bristle brush and some hair gel, and slick it back the same way you would a normal bun, leaving your middle part out.

Create the bun but ensure you leave two strands out at the crown of your head – this is where the braids will come in.

Then, simply plait them towards your face and tie them with a small, clear elastic. It’s that simple, but doesn’t look like you’ve made no effort.
