Fashion Week Trendspotting: Braids

Fashion Week Trendspotting: Braids
9 Start slideshow

As we come to the end of New York Fashion Week, we’ve been spotting beauty trends backstage all week that we’re dying to try ourselves. While makeup trends are fun and bold, we take a particular liking to the hair trends because all you’ve got to do is learn the technique to get the look. Of the trends happening, we’ve grown quite fond of the many braids we saw on the runways.

From fishtails at Christian Siriano to romantic milkmaid braids at Alice + Olivia, there’s a braid for everyone this season. Versatile enough for special occasions or second day hairstyles, braids are one of our favorite go-to looks when it comes to beauty. We’re sure this trend will continue to pop up in London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks as Fashion Month continues, and we’ll keep you in the know with all of the trends throughout the month.

Alice Olivia's loose, romantic braids were a stunning compliment to the deep crimson lips. 

Intricate braids took over at Christian Siriano. 

Alexandre Herchcovitch went for a unique braid down the back of the head, leaving half of the hair out and loose.

The feminine braids at Rodarte created by the John Frieda team were wearable and fun.

Fishtails at either side of the head were a bit disheveled at the Veronica Beard show.

Backstage at Susan Woo, braids were kept close to the head and texturized.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti kept things interesting with a braided fishtail updo.
