The best braid on the runway this week was this cool fishtail braid swept back into a geometric shape. The look was created by L’Oréal Professionnel Portfolio Artist, Amit Abraham for the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week!

At the foundation of the style is a dramatic center part that highlights fishtail braids swept into a low geometric bun. “The unexpected shape of the rectangular bun commands attention,” said Abraham, who finished the look filling in the center hair part below the bun with a lime green pencil -­ a nod to the collection’s theme.

To get the look:

Abraham first sprayed L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Reinforcing Milk at the roots to flatten the part, then worked NEW L’Oréal Professionnel True Grip powder (available February 2013) through strands for hold and texture. Fishtail braids were then woven together into a cocoon. Spritzes of L’Oréal Professionnel Freezing Mist and L’Oréal Professionnel Perfect Shimmer finishing the look with glistening shine and hold.

What a beautiful style this would be to wear to an upcoming holiday party!  Start practicing now or show your stylist the pictures next time you are at the salon!
