Get The Look: Fall Braids

[tps_header]Braids ruled the Fall 2013 runways in a major way. At Christian Siriano’s Fall ’13 presentation models strutted the catwalk with gritty fishtail braids, while sleek and conservative side braids with a leather strap headband were the flavor at Valentino’s show, and un-done, textured, half-up half-down rosettes went center stage at Rodarte. While you’re already adding booties and vampy lips into your autumn styles, finish the full fall look with a fresh take on pretty plaits!

Rodarte’s Rocker Rosette

1. Starting with damp hair, add John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse  to add texture to the hair, then blow dry with your fingers.

2. Use a Hot Tools Curling Iron to add some bend into the hair, setting with a mist of L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.

3. Brush out the waves to create volume and even more texture – smooth and polished isn’t the look we’re going for here! Grab a section of hair from each side of the front, and braid, connecting at the back of the head. Wrap the ends of the braids into a rosette shape, and secure with bobby pins.

4. Grab a section of hair directly below the rosette you’ve created, and braid this straight down to the ends of the hair, securing with an elastic.

5. Finish the ‘do with a little DRYBAR 100 proof Treatment Oil, smoothing over random ends of the hair to keep the look undone, with a little polish.
