The New Braid: Breezy On the Side
Thick, roughed-up side braids dominated the show at Lela Rose. Hairstylists teased sections with hairspray to create a slightly gritty texture, and then pulled everything to the side and braided away. Bumps and flyaways welcome.

The New Bun: The Ropey Twist
The low-slung, twisty buns at Ruffian were among the coolest ’dos seen for spring. The key is to keep your hair moist with a liquid gel or mousse. Then twist the length of your ponytail, wrap it around into a bun and jab in some bobby pins to anchor the look.

The New Going-Out Look: Side-Pinned Curls
Models at Badgley Mischka wowed the crowds with pinned-back sections of glossy curls, complemented by sparkly barrettes and clips adorned with gigantic, glamorous silk flowers, positioned right at eye level.
The New Texture: Brushed-Out Curls
Deconstructed waves were in full effect everywhere you turned. At Thakoon, stylists curled hair and then brushed it out, creating a gauzy texture that actually looked better with a little frizz going on (sayonara, flat iron!).
