The Look

Soft, pulled-apart fishtail braids — one in the front and another in the back.


“I felt like the girl had been traveling, she’s in the environment and these braids have fallen a little apart, so there’s this romance and organic quality to them. I wanted it to feel very loose and textured, almost like wheat. I wanted to see the little imperfections — there’s a sensuality to it.”

Get the look

“Take a piece of hair, split it into two and then take a third piece of hair from the outside and put it into the inside. From the left, from the right, from the left, from the right — and you just follow that pattern. It takes about 10 minutes to do one so you need strong fingers.”


“It is! You can wrap the braid around the head, you can put it in knots, wrap it into a bun, you can do lots of things to it. You could just have a single braid down the back. That’s the great thing about this kind of hairstyle — it’s versatile. There’s a sophistication to it; it’s not a naïve, girly, Pippi Longstocking braid.”

End note

“This is something that’s very wearable, and yet at the same time it’s a statement — a very pretty statement.”
