Get the Inside-Out Plait Right Off the Mara Hoffman Runway
We adore an intricate plait, and apparently the fashion designers love them, too! From DKNY to Rachel Zoe, plaits were popular on the Spring 2015 runways. But this bohemian look from Mara Hoffman was our ultimate favourite. Catwalk by TIGI global creative director Nick Irwin created this messy plait to match the California cool-girl vibe of the clothing. And we immediately wanted that SoCal style for ourselves.
Jill Engelsen of the Butterfly Studio in NYC helped us re-create this hairstyle right off the Fashion Week runway. And we learned an entirely new plait technique in the process: the inside-out braid (it's like a cross between the typical three-strand plait and a Dutch plait). Even if you don't have fantastic hand-eye coordination, you can pull off this look because it's supposed to be that messy.
