    After appearances on multiple runways during New York Fashion week -- Rachel Zoe, Rodarte, Alice + Olivia, Badgley Mischka -- it's clear braided hair is in the spotlight once again.

    Yahoo! reported a surge in users seeking new ways to incorporate plaits into their fall look this week, with top styles including "box braids," "waterfall braid," "goddess braids," "French braid," and "tree braids."

  • Braids: The Big Fall Hair Trend

    For the Rachel Zoe collection for spring/summer 2014, runway stylist Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil artistic director, created soft loose braids to pair with Zoe's windswept safari looks. The style was achieved by "taking random parts of pretextured strands, crisscrossing them, like macramé, and tucking them into the back and inside of a low braid," according to Corral Calero.

    "I started with a foundation of Moroccanoil Treatment on dry hair to condition, strengthen and smooth," he said in a written how-to, "then sprayed new Moroccanoil Root Boost (at the roots starting at the nape, and working up)."

    "New Moroccanoil Molding Cream was next. Warming a bit between my fingers, I worked it in from roots to ends," said Corral Calero. "This was a key product for the look, giving it the right semi-matte texture with enough shine. It was important for the hair to look healthy, not too dry."

    He then blow-dried the hair from underneath and lifted hair at the roots using his fingers. When almost dry, and with the model's head bent over, he then finger-massaged the hair at the root and lifted it again "to intensify the tangled texture."

    "I then sectioned the hair from ear to ear and pinned it up while I created a braid with remaining strands at the nape of the neck," said Corral Calero. "I released the top hair and then tucked different parts of the various strands into the braid like macramé and blended them in waves, creating a loose, inverse-pyramid shape that was wider on top."

    "Then I softly rotated my palm over the hair to make it lie naturally – creating more flyaways at the top," he noted. "To add a tribal vibe, I made several little braids placed randomly at the sides."
