SS16 Hair Trend: Braids & Twists

Hair braids are for the empowered woman, or at least the SS16 shows in London, New York, Milan and Paris have catapulted this hair look into grown up consciousness again. As one of the first hair styles we learn as children, it’s tempting to give up on the braid when you hit your 20s – it’s almost unthinkable past 30 right? Wrong, just look at Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra or any self-portrait of Frida Kahlo (hell, look at Princess Leia in Star Wars) and you’ll see that women with GUTS can carry a braid and a twirl with grace and gusto. You can totally mean business with your hair in plaits… Here are some of the best looks from the shows – and so easy to replicate too.
