Self-isolation is good for one thing and one thing only: keeping up-to-date on emerging tresse-trends.
We’re using this WFH time to stockpile all of the summer inspiration we’ll need in the next few months. After hours of very scientific and academically rigorous research, we’ve pinned down the post-lockdown trend every Mane Addict needs to know: braided tendrils.
Carefully crafted to frame the face, these tiny invisi-braids are a ’90s chic dream come true. So read on for 8 plaited looks we can’t wait to try this summer.
1. Jaw-Length Plaits
Stylist Laurie Zanoletti is the master of face-framing. These unbanded braids disappear into her tresses right at the jawline, drawing attention to her beautiful bone structure. We're copying this look ASAP.
2. Fashion Month Micro-braids
Model Devon Lee Carlson went all in on this 90s trend, pairing baby braids with a little black slip for YSL's runway show back in February. We're still drooling over this look.
3. All-Over Tendrils
Take a cue from influencer Courtney Trop and rock full-tresse tendrils. This edgy take on the tendril trend is ideal for your first post-quarantine night out.
4. Full-Length Plaits
You can still frame your face with a flirty full-length pair of plaits. Start your tendrils off with French braid for an even more alluring result.
5. Single Tendril
There's no need to double up on this subtle style. A single tiny tendril is just as eye-catching.
6. Banded Braids
While loose plaits look lovely, a simple band on each end adds stand-out definition to the braided tendril trend.
7. Barely There Braids
Bella Hadid's braided tendrils are so tiny, they're practically invisible. These little plaits add just a pop of texture to her tresses, the cool-girl compliment to this denim heavy ensemble.
8. Tendrils Throughout
Why stop at just two? Accessorize effortless waves with a itty bitty plaits throughout. A glitzy set of pins completes the gorgeous 'do.
