The Look: Herringbone Braids
How-To: Backstage at Suno, hairstylist Odile Gilbert played with the idea of contrasting textures, pairing wet, slicked-back hair at the top of the head with a big, deconstructed fishtail braid. She combed gel from the roots to the back of the crown and clipped the hair in place, then divided it into three sections and crossed them over and underneath one another. To finish, she pulled the braid apart with her fingers and misted it with a shine spray.
Though Odile Gilbert describes his Herringbone Braid technique very well in the article from Harper’s Bazaar, I learn more with photos 🙂 Here is a handy tutorial to recreate this look yourself. I have re-posted the tutorial by AmelieHair from www.hairstylesdesign.com which I use constantly for my own hairstyles. You can follow her on Instagram @amelydd.
Loved the Beauty look from the Spring RTW Suno Fashion Show but I wasn’t all too impressed with how the clothing hanged off the models, though I was excited by the color scheme used. Powder Blue is going to be a hit for Spring 2015. I mean come on, it’s the color of my favorite Easter candy M&Ms.
I was excited to see this trench coat as a feature in the show. I actually just acquired a powder blue Burberry coat a few weeks ago and now I’ll be even more ready this Spring 🙂
The wrap belt is nice twist to the classic look and the fabric looks light and airy.
What I took away from the look below is the complementary colors that work well with the powder blue. I will be trying some of these color combos….stay tuned!
