The Cage | Megan Shepherd | May 26th 2015 | When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn't know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments—tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures—all watched over by eerie black windows.

Like most of the epic braids we envy, we first spotted the cage braid on Instagram. The plait is a combination of the classic french and a fishtail. A central braid sits between little waterfalls of hair that move from the outside in. The finished plait looks just like a ribcage. At first glance, it seems impossible to do at home, but it is a lot easier to achieve than it looks. T3 celebrity hairstylist David Lopez broke down the twisted style into three simple steps ahead.
