From fishtail, bedhead to loose, halo styles, braids have been trending since F/W 15, largely because of the overall taste for romance, signaled by soft, flowing silhouettes on the runway. This spring, we’ll see more hair getting slicked tight and plaited down the back with a “go-anywhere, do-anything” attitude. Here’s how you can be on-trend with bohemian braids for modern romance

How to do it | Partition the hair into three zones – the front, the sides and the back. Middle partition the front and combine the sides along with it to form two long braids.

Secure it with a bobby pin and voila! You are ready!
