It looks like Spring 2010 hair will take another stroll down braid lane. But rather than just the side-to-back fairytale plaits that marked last season, designers produced different interpretations for next spring that ranged from country milkmaid to sporty sophisticate.
At Oscar de la Renta, Spring 2010 hair took on Swiss-Miss proportions, topping heads like a charming, braided halo—complete with interwoven, multi-hued ribbons. Norma Kamali piled it on to create a disheveled, braided lump, ultimately invoking images of a frazzled princess, while Alexander Wang featured a simple, messed-up side braid trailing down models’ shoulders that offset the designer’s sportier collection.
I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Spring 2010 hair will be about the braid again. Perenially pretty, braids are the ideal choice when you’ve got 2-day-old hair, deft fingers, and no time for a blow-out.
