Lepore fall winter 2011 beauty runway hair braidsLoose braids seen at Lepore.

This Fall/Winter runway season, nothing was as hot as the braid and it came in every size, shape and form.

At Byblos the disheveled fishbone braid made the impression of a girl who accidently slept on her beautiful braid after a night in the club.

At Kenzo several braids were connected into beautiful organic shapes and at Rocha a combination for smaller braids, larger braids and loose strands created an impression of the hairstyle of a Medieval wicca.

One of the more effortless and romantic was seen at Nanette Lepore, where hair stylists created a version of two loose French braids. This is how you recreate the look yourself.

1. Grab a section of the hair from the front of the left side of head and divide the section into three strands. Cross the right-hand strand over the middle strand then cross the left-hand strand over the middle strand.

2. Pick up a section of hair from the same side of the head and from the right side of the braid. Add the section to the strand, which is currently on the right side of the braid. Now, cross the right-hand section over the middle section.

3. Next, pick up a section of hair from the right side of the head but from the left side of the braid and add it to the section, which is currently on the left side. Cross the left-hand section over the middle section.

4. Finish the half-done French braid by securing the three sections with bobby pins that you make sure are as invisible as possible.

5. Repeat the braiding on the right side of the head and spray lightly with a medium hold or strong hold hairspray. Finish off the ends with some hair serum or light hair oil to get rid of frizz and to add shine. © Cover Media/ Photos: Showbit
