Fashion Month is officially over, so it's time to tot up things in a balance sheet. What hair trend hit the runways of Spring/Summer 2020? Schoolgirl braids! Seen at Dior, Max Mara, and Antonio Marras, there's no doubt that braids are in.
The fashion houses have (thankfully) succeeded in giving a touch of nobility to a hairstyle hitherto reserved for little girls. Leaving childishness behind, these braids are more feminine and daring than ever. At Dior, in line with the garden theme of the show, braids were slightly dishevelled for a rural feel.
Braids were sleek and tight at Max Mara, the perfect hairstyle for a spy on a mission to save the world.
Who can forget Britney Spears in that video for "Baby One More Time'? Dressed in a pleated skirt and unbuttoned shirt paired with two braids, the pop icon made the hairstyle a must-wear in the '90s. Two decades later, Bella Hadid - a bellwether for fashion and beauty trends - sported the look during her vacation in Mykonos last summer.
