12 Braids That Are So Stunning We Can't Stop Staring (PHOTOS)

We will never grow tired of braids. From fishtail to French braids, these intricately woven looks offer endless styling possibilities no matter your hair color, texture or length. And it should go without saying that braids transcend trends and seasons. So naturally, braided hairstyles were huge on the Spring 2014 runways.

While the techniques haven't changed much, it was exciting to watch hairstylists backstage at New York Fashion Week push the boundaries with braids. Whether it was a meticulously placed black and white feather at the end of a small plait or colorful woven belts that bound two braids together, it's all about adding an unexpected accent in an effortless way.

Check out these 12 braided hairstyles from Fashion Week and tell us which look you like best.
