4 runway braids for every occasion

It's summertime in the northern hemisphere, and European runways are heating up with inspiring hairstyles. Today's focus is on the super versatile braid: from simple plaits to braided crowns, what's your perfect plaited hairstyle?

Braided crown

Be the queen of the sea with this regal style! Don't weigh your hair down with too much product, a natural finish is essential for this look. Pair this elegant style with clean simple makeup to let your hair do the talking.

Messy four-strand side braid

Three-stranded braids aren't enough of a challenge for some of us! These days, braided looks include examples like this four stranded over-the-shoulder version. The objective is not perfection, even the most ambidextrous among us find four strands a handful to braid. Embrace different sizes, textures and flyaways – imperfection is in when it comes to hair!

Messy pigtail fishtails

Pigtails are no longer for schoolgirls, they've grown up and rebelled! Keep the boho vibe alive by using a texturising spray on dry hair like from the Wild Stylers line by L'Oréal Professionnel.

Sleek and chic to the side

Stay serene with this cool-as-a-cucumber braid that snakes over one shoulder. Perfect for transitioning your look from day to evening, we recommend a glossy fixing spray like to make sure this style stays sleek.

Whenever you spend time in the sun, especially if you have colored or naturally-red hair, make sure you're protecting your locks with an anti-UV spray like Solar Sublime sun protection, which also gives hair a healthy shine.
