Throwback Thursday: Braids Come Full Circle
Throwback Thursday is a column on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Veruschka
The Moment: Plaits-a-Plenty
The Motivation: With fashion week officially beginning today, we thought it would be the perfect time to revisit a hairstyle staple that—in recent seasons—has dominated the runway: the braid. From Luigi Murenu’s plaited crowns at Viktor & Rolf for Fall 2013 to Guido Palau’s intricate, interwoven headbands for Valentino’s Couture collection the same season, the style is as versatile as it is popular. Case in point: the above shot of Veruschka from a 1967 issue of Vogue. While the legendary super’s face-framing ring of braids is more editorial than runway ready, we can’t help but wonder what new twists we’ll see on this catwalk classic for Spring 2014.
