Sometimes clean and simple goes a long way, this holds true for the hairstyle seen on the models of the Valentino fall / winter 2013 show at Paris fashion week. Inspired by portraits of Dutch masters, the Valentino collection had a very intimate and personal feel to it. It is was a collection that women can easily relate to and Redken Creative Consultant Guido Palau created a hairstyle with the same feel: a simple yet elegant side braid.
Side braids have been on-trend for quite some time now. What truly separates this braid from the previous incarnations is that its smooth as opposed to the chunky or messy ones we’ve commonly seen in recent seasons. As a fall 2013 hairstyle, this side braid uses innocence as a source of seduction and simplicity as a statement. Taking cues from what Valentino as a brand stands for, this side braid was made to be a hairstyle that women all over the world can relate to and, lucky for us, this look is very easy to recreate. Read on after the break for the complete how-to for the Valentino simple & chic side braid.
