Hair once reserved for casual days at the beach has found its way onto runways and red carpets for a look that's effortlessly chic and utterly youthful. The braid has shown up in variety from full braids down the back to skinny locks of hair braided and pulled back.
"They're going to be really popular for fall," says Dennie Haydel, manager at be. Salon.
Since last summer the fishtail braid has been gaining momentum and again made a messy appearance at the Tory Burch spring 2013 collection showing during New York Fashion Week - further proving the undone is how it's done.
"Even on the red carpet the braids are messy. They aren't neat or fixed," Dennie says.
Keep the makeup clean and fresh for daytime with a braid and at night think rich red lips, light lids and lots of lashes to balance the undone nature of the braid. Bonus for braids: they look great with fall's new must-have ombre hair. - AB
