There’s something about the start of a new season and braided hair that just goes hand in hand. We’re ready for some style magic and one of our preferred ways to embrace Fall is to let our hair do the talking. Are you ready for the next beauty trend? DNA braids. This trend is game-changing and has emerged as the hairstyle of the season. Whether you’re an enthusiast of French or fishtail braids, these pleats are effortlessly polished and fitting for work and even romantic date nights. This elaborate hairstyle struts structural and show-stopping aesthetics; it has scene-stealer printed all over it! Needless to say, we’re completely captivated.
Although we’ve seen our fair share of braids in all their glory, we’re playing favourites with this dreamy tousled one created by hair stylist Alexandra Wilson. Her social media feed is flooded with whimsical updos and immense love from her fans. The reaction to her DNA braids has even caused a frenzy! Her looks are a little ethereal, a little Alice in Wonderland and completely glorious. She dedicates her art to show that there’s always time to express your creativity and simply do away with the beauty rules. So, no matter your hair colour, length, or texture, she provides plenty of inspiration on how you can add braid vibes to your beauty book.
Her creations often fall just below our radar — but it shouldn’t. This stylist is sharing all her hair secrets and tips, and in turn, giving us the most instagrammable, versatile, low-maintenance braided hairstyle trends that fall has ever seen.
As we upgrade our wardrobe and makeup collection, we also want to our hair to match that vibe. So, hit refresh on your look with this romantic hairdo! If you find this intricate updo a tad intimidated, opt for smaller geometric braids this season.
