Pretty but utilitarian headband braids were all over the Fashion Week runways, and they've been the rage among celebrities for months now. But although they might seem like a limited, one-size-fits-all kind of style, there are actually lots of ways to wear the look. Whether you have short or long hair, fine or thick, there's a headband braid that will work for you.
Two of this Fashion Week's most prominent hair trends were fancy bohemian-style braids and teased, high-texture hair, appearing at Rachel Roy and Tracy Reese (among other shows). I like both looks but wanted to combine them into something simpler to do and more wearable for the office. So I kept the braid's center part, but instead of doing a time-consuming wraparound, I just did two smaller band braids from the center. Then, I teased up the back of my hair with an Rsession Tools teasing comb ($13). What do you think? Is it a workable fusion of the two big trends, or do you think I should come up with a different way to put them together?

At yesterday's Topshop Unique show, some of the models walked the runway with black paint on their noses to look like little dalmatians, and their hair was styled in double buns adorned with black velvet bows. The look was certainly fun and definitely unique (har, har), but I'm not sure it's something I'm brave enough to bare next season. Would you don a double bun?
