>> Hair hair...a toast to the ridiculously-easy-to-mimic Spring/Summer 2005 runway 'dos. Tiny braids paired with bed-head hair were all over the models for the Jean Galliano collection (left). I cannot stress the greatness of this runway trend -- we all learned to braid when we were like two (it's not like you're trying to put a chandelier in your hair or anything...cough...Dior), and little braids are cute no matter where you're going...even if it's just to the grocery store. For a more sophisticated look, go for the Heidi-esque style seen on the Moschino models (right). Take advantage, people... just make two pigtails and then bobby pin them so that they criss-cross over the top of your head. Or, if you're still after that boho look, just braid your hair into a couple of loose pigtails and let them hang.
Braids even showed up the the runways of lesser-knowns: Chado Ralph Rucci (left), for example. But don't worry, ladies, this trend has showed up again on Fall 2005 runways -- Tess Giberson's models had double braids extending down their backs, and Louis Verdad's Frida Kahlo-inspired collection involved intricate braided updo's. So rest assured, by the time you perfect your preferred braided look, it won't already be out of vogue again.
If you are severely lacking in the braiding department, don't fret, dreamweaver braiding will help remedy that, easy. So no excuses -- if you don't try this out, I might have to severely upbraid you.
