We need your vote in the Studio Braid Debate.
Garance loves a really romantic braid, something softer and less severe – but I kind of love the idea of a no-nonsense, all-business braid. One that keeps every strand in place if you happen to be running around all day, like this one we saw backstage at Proenza Schouler that was inspired by the glamorous but busy downtown New York woman.
I completely agree with G that a little looser and more feminine is prettier, but I tend to opt for one like this, which is ideal for thick, prone-to-grease hair like mine. Its no-fuss sensibility is more practical. But maybe a braid is less about pragmatism and more about the beauty of it? What do you think?
See, this one designed by Anthony Turner for Bumble and bumble is all about simplicity – no brush was even used, just finger-combed hair tightly woven. How about you? Are you more enticed by the intricate styles, ones that transport you… A more aspirational look? Or a sporty and totally practical variation?
