The Twisted Punk Braid Autumn/Winter 2016
Designer Lubov Azria added a punk twist to classic Hervé Léger bodycon shapes for New York Fashion Week autumn/winter 2016, so what better hairstyle to send models down the runway with than a look we like to call The Twisted Punk Braid?
This imperfect punky plait with tumbling natural texture is an easy way to get an punk-inspired 'do without any long-term commitment – and we love its subtle romance, too. With one side twisted tightly along the length of the head, and the other left in loose waves, it’s a structured-meets-soft style that perfectly echoed the edgy yet feminine details – think studs, frayed edges, rivets and eyelets – in the Hervé Léger AW16 collection. A statement-making hairstyle for a standout show? We think so.
TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador Orlando Pita describes The Twisted Punk Braid as the perfect look for women to wear to "channel their inner tomboy," making it a great choice for casual street style too. And if you want a more elegant look for the office, wear a double French braid by day, then simply let one side out to create a similar asymmetric style that will turn heads when you’re off-duty.
Since no punk wants to look polished, the TRESemmé Botanique range is the ideal collection for creating wavy texture that doesn’t look too try-hard. Get this gorgeously grungy look in six simple steps below.
