The braid has long been relegated to the status of “summer hairstyle”, but this season, it is proving to maintain its star status for winter 2013-2014. You just need to look at this season’s catwalks to see that the braid is going to be present in hairstyles in every shape and size imaginable. Here’s a quick look at how the braid should be worn over the next few months. The crown braid on a down-‘do.
Here, the braid is worn in the form of a headband. Ideal on long to mid-length hair
, it shows off the face and provides your hairstyle with a hint of romanticism. Worn fairly thin, it stops your hair from falling in your face. The side braid.
Undeniably bohemian, the side braid is both feminine and practical. The side braid works best on long hair and this winter it should be worn strict with not a hair out of place! Add a black headband for a bit of structure. The crown braid at the back of the hair.
The solution for anyone wanting to tie back their hair without sacrificing style! Part your hair in the middle
, then create two braids at the back of your head. One from right to left and the other left to right. Ideally, avoid tightening the braids too much for a slightly laid-back feel. The French braid half ponytail.
Rather than wearing a traditional half ponytail, why not braid it. Create two parallel partings on the top of the head and create a French braid rather than a ponytail. The rest of the hair is left down and wavy
to avoid looking too strict. © Pixelformula/Nicolas Andreas Taralis prêt-à-porter show, Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
