While fashion week may be your main source of fashion inspiration (duh), don’t overlook the endless number of envy-worthy beauty trends that debut on the runway too. From makeup looks to hairstyles, there’s plenty to take note of. This fashion week, we were quick to fall in love with the many high fashion braided hairstyles that complemented all the trend-setting ensembles. Click through to learn how to create three high fashion braids that can help you look runway ready on the daily.
Thought you left this beloved hairstyle back in 1999? Think again. Braided pigtails are making a total comeback—and they made a serious splash during fashion week. Of course, there are a few extra details to this hairstyle that make it fit for your later years—you don’t want to look exactly as you did in elementary school.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel
Get the look:
Step #1: Part your hair
For this pigtail style, you want to rock a middle part. Create your part and split your hair into two sections.
Step #2: Grab a hair gel
Use a hair gel to slick back the top of your hair for a chic, sleek look. The hair gel will also give your hair an extra strong hold and a natural shine.
Step #3: Braid your hair
Braid each section of hair into a traditional three-strand braid starting just below your ears. Secure your braids with a clear elastic for a seamless look!
This braided hairstyle is perfect for those with textured hair. The style goes back thousands of years and is seriously gorgeous. Wear box braids down, thrown up into a ponytail, or even in a bun—they're so versatile.

If you aren’t too keen on branching out and trying a new braided hairstyle, lucky for you, there’s a braid that’s similar to your go-to that walked the runway this year. This slicked-back braided hairstyle is particularly fashionable and it doesn’t require learning any new braiding techniques.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel
Just as with your pigtail braid hairstyle, you want to start by creating a middle part.
Step #2: Make it sleek
Slick back your hair towards the back of your head using a hair gel. This will help you sculpt your style, keep any stray hairs in place throughout the day, and give your mane high shine.
Step #3: Braid away
Keeping your hair at the base of your neck, weave your hair into your braid of choice. You can rock a traditional three-strand braid or something a little different like a fishtail braid.
Editor’s note: Don’t know how to create a fishtail braid? We've got you covered! Head over to our article, Our Easy Fishtail Braid Tutorial, for a step-by-step guide.
If you’re all about romantic vibes, this runway-inspired hairstyle is for you. A braided headband instantly upgrades any hairstyle by adding a feminine touch. Whether you decide to create an updo or wear your hair down, consider adding this high fashion braid into the mix to transform your look.
