I was browsing through the photos for Fall/Winter (FW) Fashion Week and found some really interesting braided hairstyles on the runway. Hair braiding is considered an ancient art and traces its roots from West Africa.  As far back as 4000 BC, the Ancient Egyptians were known to practice hair braiding.

Several thousand years later, we see so many variations of hair braids in all walks of life. Here are my favourite hair braids from the recent runway shows!

Tiny milkmaid braids as seen at Pucci FW 2012 - These braids are apparently “fake” and color-matched to the model’s hair before being pinned at the crown. Very neat and retro look, and the prosthetic braids reminded me of my faux-hair headband that I loved wearing when I was in my teens.

One common theme I observed from the various shows this Fashion Week season is that makeup colours have mellowed and hair colours have gone bigger and brighter.

Several designers had showcased their models in bare or natural makeup this season. Lips fluctuated from bright red to nude or beige. Fancy eye colours observed at previous Spring/Summer shows have been retired for mauve or taupe colours. On the crowning glory though, we see a variety of colours. Mint, pink, gold, green… just name it!

The nail colour used on the models was Deborah Lippman’s “Waking up in Vegas”. The makeup and nail polish were deliberately subdued to divert all attention to the hair, and the actual Spring/Summer collection!

While I just had a hair cut and I am currently sporting a rather short bob now, I often envy how girls with long mane could sport those loose buns for a Grecian or Bohemian look.

In this video, we learn how to DIY a Chignon hairstyle. If the power ponytail hairstyle was level 1, I think the difficulty level of DIY Chignon is about level 2 or 3. Take a look at the video and see if you are up for the challenge!

Also, here are some behind-the-scene pictures!

Previously on MsGlitzy.com, we introduced one of the most popular runway hairstyles – the Power Ponytail.

With the help of my friends Mr Stylistry and Sgprincess, we have put together a video on how to DIY this hairstyle on your own. Trust me, it is kinda easy peasy.

Having seen so many “ponytail looks” on the runway recently, I’ve invited my friend Mr Stylistry aka the Hair Expert to share his views. Mr Stylistry, who works in the beauty industry and recently started a men’s style blog, is going to introduce us to the “Power Ponytail”!

Let’s face it.  There isn’t much variety in the hairstyles that fashion designers send down the catwalk every season in the fashion capitals; save for the haute couture collections where they get a little more creative. New York, of them all, sends out models in the NYFW in either a ponytail, a chignon, pouffy hair, or a variation of one of them.
