I’m a sucker for a good braid – blame the German in me but the whole Heidi look? I’m totally into it. While I haven’t seen Heidi braids on the runway just yet, braids have been a major runway beauty trend in plenty of other iterations this season. Suno, Peter Som and Tome were just a few of the designers who opted to give the classic look a makeover. What’s so great about this trend is that you can play with it to suit your style – you can make the look anything from grungy or bold to refined.
The loose wide braid at Suno was my favorite. It was so chic against the collection’s bright ready-to-wear (and to die bold sunglasses…) and because there weren’t any flyaways and the hair was blown out straight, it didn’t distract from any of the looks despite its eye-catching nature.
The fishtail that Tome showed I thought was a bit creepy like a slimy fish?! While I wasn’t a big fan its graphic texture made for good runway shots and I did like how they wrapped a piece of hair around the elastic at the end.
Can’t go wrong with a classic french braid. It’s easy, stylish and always works in a pinch. This is also a great look to go for if you’re trying a bold makeup look as it will provide some balance.
These braids are beautiful, but I have no dexterity when it comes to re-creating the look on myself. Maybe a “Braids for Dummies” tutorial?
