Braided hairstyles are always in; 2013’s hair trends proving no exception. They’re relatively easy to do, they keep everything in place, and the can transform a look whether with their slick sophistication, their girlishness or their bohemian romance. And once in a while we spot a braid upgrade that truly captures our eyes and heart. One such is the the one we spotted at the Rodarte fall 2013 show.
Season after season, Rodarte delivers not only with their collection but also in the hairstyle they present it with. For fall 2013, the tie dyed prints of the collection were matched with a “rocker princess” look created by Odile Gilbert for John Frieda. What we absolutely adore from this look is that it elevates braids to a more romantic yet modern level. Check out the complete and very easy how to for this look after the break.
How to: half up braided hair with bun.
Start working on this hairstyle by prepping up. On damp hair, apply a good amount of styling mousse like John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse. This will help you get the texture needed to pull this look off.
Sweet yet a little grungy and boho, this is the braid for the modern day princess who’s no damsel-in-distress. It’s also very flexible which means you can wear it day or night, casual of formal.
