Beyond Braids

The plaits of last year are replaced with even more intricate hairstyles

Implications - It's undeniable that in the beauty world, this past couple years marked the era of the braided hairstyle. This is in part due to its intricacy -- a good braid is a testament to a person's skill. Taking this a step further, beauty bloggers and professional stylists alike are going beyond the braid and into even more complex coif territory as a channel to further communicate prestige.
