Dream Weavers1 of 11
By Tiffany Tse
Just when we thought we'd seen every way to braid hair, the fall runways offered us plenty of new plait possibilities. Check out ten of the most creative styles and find out how to re-create the looks.
Better Half2 of 11
At Etro, thick half-back fishtail plaits help elevate your typical braid. For a similar style, make sure to enhance and thicken your strands with a texture mist before braiding your hair.
Midas Touch3 of 11
Mara Hoffman's loose, barely-there braid is pretty on its own, but dipped in a bit of gold hairspray, the bohemian style feels a little more glamorous.
Fringe Benefits4 of 11
At Nanette Lepore, waterfall braids—a tricky technique where part of the hair is braided, and the other part cascades down—are woven across the forehead to create a flirtatious faux fringe.
Peek Out5 of 11
An unexpected surprise at Brandon Sun? Sleek, smooth hair with blink-and-you'll-miss-it plaits hidden towards the back. To get that pin-straight look, use a treatment oil to smooth out dry ends.

Nice Buns6 of 11
While the braided buns at Bibhu Mohapatra are elegant, the untucked ends give the style a playful, modern touch. Styling tip: Apply L'Oréal Professionnel's True Grip texturizing powder before braiding to make hair more pliable.
On Edge7 of 11
The severe, tightly braided cornrows at Concept Korea hint at a throwback to the grunge era.
Seeing Double8 of 11
The braid-in-braid look at Temperley—a narrow plait woven across the crown that flowed into a side braid—looks deceptively simple from the front, but is far more detailed and interesting from the back. Models had their hair prepped with Moroccanoil Treatment (or the brand's Treatment Light for fine or light-colored tresses), which made strands shinier and easier to style.
Center of Attention9 of 11
A single precise braid woven down the center part at Tibi was made to look like a mini mohawk. To hold the look, finish off with a hairspray like Living Proof's flexible version.
Pony Up10 of 11
At Marchesa, models also sported braided cornrows. But by gathering hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, the look is slightly more feminine. TONI&GUY's Stick It Up Gum was applied to model's hair, especially at the ends, to create definition.
Tie the Knot11 of 11
The messy, textured style at Zero + Maria Cornejo is actually a mix of cornrow, knotted and fishtail braids, designed to look natural and slept-in.
