The 7 Coolest Braids Spotted at Paris Fashion Week
Fashion month is all about the style statements made on the runway, on the street, and in the front row—but we can hardly ignore the standout beauty looks completing each ensemble. Take, for example, all the braids at Paris Fashion Week. We’re not talking about your average three-strand plait, but rather cool, unconventional styles that elicit a double take. From Olivia Culpo’s braid-hawk (yes, that’s a thing) to Ciara’s effortless fishtail, these are the new styles to copy this spring.

We spotted Olivia Culpo between shows with this Mohawk-inspired braid, and we love the way it added some edge to her otherwise polished look. If you’re going to give this style a try, grab Bumble and Bumble’s Multi-Talented Sculpting Medium ($41) to help smooth any flyaways on the sides.
While model Loulou Robert’s brows are often the focal point of her look, all eyes were on her fresh take of the milkmaid braid at the Valentino show. Instead of the traditional two tails, it was split into four smaller sections, a look that screams music festival. We recommend using these Lady Jayne Elastomer Bands ($6) for the best results.

While we’re still attempting to master Ciara’s braided crown from the H&M show, the singer gave us yet another inspiring braid to add to our Pinterest boards. Her loose fishtail braid at the Givenchy show is equal parts effortless and chic—perfect for date night. Toni & Guy's Casual Rough Texturiser ($16) is great for upping the volume.
