Deconstructed Braids

Monday, March 28, 2011

Ever since Guido Paulu came up with the "braids that look wrong" hairdo, the side braids seem to be everywhere nowadays. Aren't they fun? (And prevent from hair falling on your face). It would be such an easy look for summer picnics, bike rides or outdoor jazz nights! Very feminine yet messy, almost Pocahontas-like look, don't you think? Would you try it? xo

P.S: Here is how to.

I love this look. I remember seeing it some of the fashion shows.

i think it looks cool on them, but i like my hair to be slightly more polished. :)
that being said, i'm a HUGE fan of the side braid, maybe just not the pieces hanging out too.

Lady Grey said...

I love a single random braid... maybe two. Looks lovely. But more than that and I'm not so sure anymore. Although these models can pull anything off.

Hope you have a great Monday! oxo
