This weekend we saw a slew of braids on New York Fashion Week runways. But not just any old Little House on the Prairie braids. These were braids with a serious twist! At Charlotte Ronson, models’ hair was slicked to one side with a few tiny plaits peeking out from underneath. Meanwhile, the models at Erin Fetherston and Band of Outsiders wore chunky braids–Erin Fetherston’s were wrapped crown-style around their heads, and Band of Outsiders were pulled to one shoulder.
