I always loved these braided looks for Tracy Reese at her Spring 2008 NY Fashion Week show.  Edris Nichols designed the retro-sportif beautiful loosely braided pigtails rolled to one side, then she messed up the ends, but not too much!  She says she was inspired by the ’30s through the ’70s and you can see more of them, including some great front views and a how-to  if you click here
