When the average braid just won't do, try an inverted fishtail iteration, like this look from John Galliano. But, DIYer's take note: It's much easier to learn this technique when hair is secured in a ponytail instead of trying to weave unbound strands.
To give your look extra oomph, do as Nina Dobrev does and create a sleek, sturdy base (complete with a defined center part!) before braiding hair to the ends.
For a more free-spirited take on the herringbone look, start the braid below the nape of your neck, like Maria Menounos.
