NYFW Spring 2015 Trend Alert: Braids, Braids, Braids

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.

Steal the Look: Nicola Peltz’s Perfect Summer Frizz

Normally we see summer frizz and think, “No, thank you!” We buy all sorts of sprays and serums to keep the dreaded f-word at bay, but what if for once we just let it happen – or to be more exact, made it happen?
