With more and more people sharing different hair tutorial videos online, it is no longer a rare sight to see people rocking interesting, and rather complicated hairstyles on a casual day out. People are more accepting of different braids and bigger hairstyles now, and are often seen to be pulling inspirations from big runways and fashion shows for their own daily up dos.
One of our writers have recently attended Vancouver Fashion Week 2016, and apart from the collections of Womenswear and Menswear, we were also attracted by the hairstyles at the show. Within the wide range of different styles, we have particularly chosen the four following hairstyles, which we think are simple but perfect for day outs or evening events.
First up is the Cornrows Crochet. If you are well skilled with your milkmaid braids, this should be something that you can master. By separating your hair into three or four sections, braid them into tight and neat braids, and finish them off as a ponytail weave at the end. Chic, and also great for matching with a denim and tee look; this style is for sure an urban suitable look.
For those who wants to keep it more low key, but is looking for something unique; we would definitely recommend the Slipknot Pony. Pull out a one-third section of your hair, and wrap that around and up through your normal ponytail. This easily creates an illusion of a complicated braid, without having to actually go through all the hassle. Secure the sections with bobby pins and you’re ready to go.
If you’re looking for something more glam, the Braid Bang is a great classic look. Perfect for those with long, thick hair; simply braid your hair and tug the ends loose. Secure the end with elastic and wrap the whole thing around your forehead. Secure with bobby pin. We think this style would also look great with hair accessories such as loops and flower pieces.
Last but not least, for those who like to have their hair back, we would recommend the Twisted Fishtail. Similar with the Cornrows Crochet, section your hair into two parallel french braids first, then, weave them together with knots and twists, and finish it off with a tight fishtail braid. This up do would go well with soft, puffy hair, so do feel free to tease the top a little to create more volume and texture.
