The braided parting is fast becoming one of autumn-winter 2014-2015’s hottest runway looks! Let’s take a closer look at this original trend to give your current hairstyle a new lease of life!
The braided parting is the perfect way to add an ethnic-chic vibe to your loose lengths. ‘The principle is exactly the same as the classic French braid
. Start by sectioning off the area you want to braid, close to where your normal parting would normally lie. Next, plait your braid with 3 separate pieces. Secure with a hair tie
and loosen slightly so that it blends into the rest of your style. If you have a friend nearby, ask them to help with this section for a neat finish’.
The braided parting is a great way to modernize your regular hairstyle. ‘What we love is that this parting works for all hair types! You can style this plait wherever you like...in the centre, to one side or even as a low parting. Or, take this trend to the next level and create several different braids. You will, however, need at least shoulder length
hair to replicate the runway look’. Our advice:
If you want to make your braided parting more noticeable, play with the thickness for varying results. Need more convincing? This subtle and sophisticated creation will work for both day and night time looks, meaning you can go from work to drinks with friends in minutes.
