All About Those Braids

Braided hairstyles are one of the most timeless hair trends we’ve ever seen. We have seen braids in all forms––from easy braids to braids incorporated into intricate hairstyles.  And just when we thought we had seen it all, the fashion world has taken braids to the next level. Models stepped on the runway sporting the ever-loved boxer braids, originally coined by the infamous Ronda Rousey. This masculine trend, paired with feminine pieces allow for a balanced and compelling style. 

For a more laid-back look, stylists opt for a tousled braid. Emporio Armani and Hervé Léger incorporated loose, braided updos into their runway schemes. For those seeking a more elegant look, look to Badgley Mischka for inspiration. His models caught the attention of the audience with their stunning braided styles that complimented his “low-key” glam style.

The parted pony made headlines during 2018’s New York Fashion Week, and we’re bringing it into our everyday life. The parted pony is designed to enhance any part. Whether you’re going for a striking middle part or an exaggerated side part, this modern look is the epitome of contemporary style.

But, it's short natural hairstyles that are putting us over the edge! Textured bobs dipping right below the jawline have stolen the show during this year’s New York Fashion Week. From icons in the audience to models taking the runway, this chic cut seems to be the trend for 2018’s fashion scene. Integrate your natural part and opt for a blunt end to deliver the astonishing appearance that this look deserves.
