Inspired By | Decorated braids on the Reem Acra Catwalk
It’s probably the worst kept secret around Percy Handmade HQ that I adore a beautiful braid. Whether it’s worn soft and loose, finished in a chignon or wrapped in flowers, as soon as a bride tells me it’s her hairstyle of choice, my fingers begin itching to create something beautiful for her to adorn it with.
So, you can imagine the pattern of my heartbeat when I saw Reem Acra’s most recent 2016 bridal show, where decorated braids were out in all their glory instead of traditional jewellery. Extra long braids snaked down the backs of models, and were adorned with rhinestones, pearls, tiny silk flowers – almost all of my very favourite things in one beautiful hairstyle.
Here’s just a few of my favourite snaps from the runway of this stunning look:
