I would just like to declare summer 2011 the summer of the braid, but taking a style cue from F/W 2011 it seems that braids are here to stay and even taking on different forms.
This is one braid I can't wait to rock come fall, shown above at Charlotte Ronson F/W '11, the peek-a-boo/hidden braid. It adds a pop of fun to an otherwise regular 'do that is somewhat unexpected. You almost don't even notice it unless you're up close and you take a second glance which is a fresh change from the out there boho braids from spring and summer.
Try one, or a couple. Regular braid or fishtail braid. So many possibilities!
Here's my take:
I went for a fishtail braid and pulled on some of the strands to give it a looser look. I love how it turned out.
What do you think? xo
