Lela Rose S/S 2011
Last year there was the famous Alexander Wang side swept braid and this season Lela Rose has a similar thing going on with sort of a deconstructed version of it. I love the messiness. It’s kind of like if the Alexander Wang braid woke up after a very long nap.
Lacoste S/S 2011
The tiny little braid at Lacoste is just so darn cute. I’ve never been able to figure out how to braid so close to the hairline so if anyone knows of a good how-to video, let me know!
Behnaz Sarafpour S/S 2011
This twisty knot braid is super adorable and a great non-chignon option. Looks like it’s pretty easy to do: changing direction from one side to another.
Alexis Mabille Couture Spring 2011
If you take away the flowers, this is a straight up ponytail braid. Blake Lively has been wearing it a lot lately and I’ve been very jealous of her. My hair is just not long enough.
Ungaro S/S 2011
Let me just say how glad I am that Ungaro is back to normal sans Lindsay Lohan. Not only was the garden showing the perfect venue for a little comeback, but these milkmaid braids really added to the whole romantic concept. I wear this style a lot! It’s super easy: you make two braids and connect them at the top with bobby pins.
To braid or not to braid? Which style would you love to try?
