The hair braid is making its comeback again. But this time in a different way and with enough variety to for ever get rid of its girly image.
During the catwalk shows in the spring and summer of 2013 you can see a braid in a bun, twisted along the forehead and even flicked up, where little tufts jump out in a playfull way.
In the Jeremy Scott show, the braid surprisingly enough came out of a bun, that was placed on top of the head. The braid was very long and reached till the waist of the models.
Eugene Souleiman, creatif director of Wella Professionals, who took care of the hair during the show “I wanted the hair to be seen as an accessory; This is why I have created a long rope-like braid. It is a piece of jewelry.”
The most eye-catching is the braid art in the show by Emerson during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. Models appeared on the catwalk with braids along and across the forehead and were turned into a low bun which was secured on the back of the head. The hairdo reminds of medieval times, but with an ultra modern twist.
Designer Tory Burch also came with a modern version on a well-known image, namely those of the two braids wearing Heidi. The interpretation that he gave to the blushing blond girl is however entirely different. His models wore dangling, messy flicked up braids, which turned Heidi from a brave girl to a tough and mature woman.
