Hairstyles come and go, but braids are rarely far off the radar. Variations on the braid made their way into the list of 2013 hairstyles, with the spring 2014 shows carrying on the trend.
The longevity of the braid can be attributed to the fact that it’s very accessible to women all over the world. Its flexibility gives us room to be creative and it can be worn for almost any occasion. In Diesel Black Gold’s spring / summer 2014 show, the classic french braid was given a more chic and urban look by Redken’s Guido Palau. Chic yet feminine, the braid seen on the show was a mix of sleek with a beach-like feel.
