A Tale of Two Braids

Be it glam or boho, we’ve got two ways to get you perfectly plaited.

1) A FISHTAIL FOR THE AGES

For boho-inspired brides with long, full locks, a fishtail braid is the perfect statement. Fishtails can be worn as structured or relaxed as you would like. This look is easily complemented by blooms from your bouquet, other natural elements, or something more structured, like this cascading five-piece gold leaf pin ($195) set from Melinda Rose Design.

2) DOUBLE INSIDE-OUT FRENCH BRAID WITH A MODERN TWIST

Finished with a bun and braided accent, this double-braided updo is the perfect mix of traditional and modern. Keep the focus on the braid, or pump up the volume with delicate hair accessories like these exquisite gold, pearl, and crystal flower combs ($45, set of two) from Melinda Rose Design. Stylist Meaghan Levy says, “Balancing symmetry with asymmetry, this braid is for the sophisticated bride with an edge, leaving her mark wherever she goes.”
