Braids have remained a timeless constant both on and off the catwalks in recent years but for AW17, it’s time to mess things up a little.

Tied low at the nape of the neck, this season, braids are dishevelled and untamed in a romantic, tousled manner as seen on Gigi Hadid at Alberta Ferretti and at Creatures of Comfort. Forget about spending precious minutes in the morning trying to perfect your braid and bring flyaways under control as this look is all about that “slept-in” texture. Worn loose and undone, this is the perfect hairstyle to see you through the autumn months.

Find out how to get this season’s look in the video tutorial by Michelle Grimes below.
