Side Braid

In the midst of millions of ballerina buns and topknots this season, the side braid caught all of my attention. The look is easy to create, fast, and deceivingly sexy. Featured by Alexander Wang for Spring 2010, the style was lose and wavy. Redken’s Guido Palau, the hairstylist responsible for this look, did the hair for 25 shows this season, including Louis Vuitton and Chloe – but his simply side braid is the most requested look for the season!

To create the look, Palau added long extensions to models’ hair for drama, using Redken Thickening Lotion to provide a textured and matte effect. Then he braided the hair thickly and low, and brought it over to the side. He complemented the look with makeshift bangs that were pulled over the right eye for asymmetry. “The more disheveled you can get it, the sexier and cooler it is,” Palau said. The bushy unkept eyebrows are equally sexy.
