We hate to be all, "Oh, we totally called it," but in the case of spring 2014's biggest hair trend, we sort of did. After we first obsessed over Ivana Helsinki's tightly-twisted 'dos more than a week ago, the braid has been popping up on Fashion Week runways everywhere. And the best part is, there are about a billion different ways to wear it.
We've seen French-braided pigtails at Kenneth Cole, fishtail braids at Houghton, and the clean-cut classic version at Costello Tagliapietra. There were also messy, tousled plaits at Rachel Zoe, full heads of beaded twists (on guys, nonetheless!) at Hood by Air, and two different takes on the crown braid at Rebecca Minkoff and Nicole Miller.
Check out all our favorite braids in the gallery below, and get inspired to do the twist this spring.
