Side braid hairstyles come in all shapes and sizes, and no matter how you wear them, they're guaranteed to look gorgeous.

To help inspire your next pretty plait, we have five very covetable looks to try, courtesy of some of your favorite celebrities!

1. Kerry Washington

Actress, mom and all-round superwoman Kerry Washington never disappoints on the red carpet but this intricate braided hairstyle deserves some serious bonus points. Combining a large, airy braid with a tight micro-braided tail, it's a style that's as interesting as it is beautiful.

2. Cara Delevingne

Everyone's favorite It girl, Cara Delevingne, is a model(/actress/singer/hat-wearer) by trade, so it's hardly a surprise that she's really good at this whole red carpet hair thing. That said, how gorgeous is this messy, voluminous side braid? And how much do you want to steal it?

3. Blake Lively

L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Blake Lively has some of the best hair on the planet and with it, she sure knows how to execute a fishtail braid. If your own fishtail braiding skills are a little rusty, look no further for all the motivation you could possibly need to get practicing again!

4. Eva Longoria

Former Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria is another red carpet beauty pro. The philanthropist and L'Oréal Paris spokesperson can always been seen at a gala, premiere or party of some kind so it's no wonder she can rock a tousled fishtail braid like no other!

5. Doutzen Kroes

Model and L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Doutzen Kroes is one of the few people who can make wet-look hair look easy, and she's also very good at making us believe that her effortless-looking side braid probably was effortless. It's not fair, but at least it looks amazing.

What do you think? Which side braid will you try first?
