The undone or sleek look remains current. Braided hairstyles where all of the hair is braided tightly against the head are new.

Styling tips for braided hairstyles

A braided hairstyle should definitely last all day. Work mousse into the hair and dry it as usual to create enough hold after washing. Then slippery strands which would otherwise escape from the braid have no chance. Dry and stubborn ends of braids turn shiny and supply with a bit of styling cream or hair oil in the tips.

In our gallery, we show you the most beautiful braided hairstyles from the runway and provide practical tips for recreating them at home.
