Hair Trends for 2013: The Braid

Helen Simms Braid


One of the major hair trends this year seems to be the braid. It was featured (as shown) at Herve Leger, as well as Balmain and Marchesa and I personally think it looks both practical and chic.


It’s therefore a look I’d love to try, but I have a feeling it shouldn’t be done without the help of a hairdresser?! Any tips? xx

J’adore Dior!

On this cold and snowy January afternoon I found myself dreaming of warmer days and what better form of escapism than Raf Simons’s debut collection for Dior (Spring/Summer 2013)?  This is my first in a series of illustrations of the collection.

What do you think?
