Rachel Adler

I’ve come to the realization that I may be growing out my hair solely so that I can braid it once again. Not lying. But, with the ever-dominating braid trend, I have good reason. Not only were braids huge for the spring shows, but we’re seeing them take over the fall runways as well. Dominick Pucciarello of Mizu Salon showed us how to get a roughed up side braid for any season even those days that showers are just too much. Folow his steps below to look trendy and chic in no time.
