Hot ’Do
The Halo Braid

Valentino’s most recent runway was rife with a hairdo that looks like it climbed down from the Alps atop a gal named Heidi: the halo braid. Now spotted on glamorous types like Scarlett Johansson and Kirsten Dunst, it’s definitely the style of the summer, and the boho look happens to be a handy way to hide a bad hair day. In fact, the messier it is, the better. (Good thing, since it’s tricky to do yourself and requires enough bobby pins to set off a mall security alarm.) A few loose wisps will keep you from being mistaken for a bridesmaid or a milkmaid — and show that underneath that halo, you’re really devil-may-care.
