Day-Old Braids

25 Nov
Deconstructed braids show up on the runway

Day-old braids can look slept on.

A deconstructed braid is popular this year with runway collections showing us the how-to.

Mara Hoffman’s southwestern appeal for Spring 2015 showcases a thick, wispy, I-did-my-hair-two-days-ago braid and has her audience quickly following the trend.

To do a day-old braid, dry hair without a brush using only fingers for combing. Spray in dry shampoo for matte texture and hold.

Create a braid using traditional three, four or five strand techniques and mix the braids along the way so they give a more unique and carefree mirage.

Gently deconstruct the braid with fingers by prying open and pulling at areas along the braid shaft. Finish by loosening strands around the face for framing.

A messy braid that is clean and fresh?! High five to TIGI designer Nick Irwin for this look. Now we can do our braids and sleep on them too.
