Braided Beauty at Maria Grachvogel

We can't decide what we love more that braid, or those nails


By Amy Lawrenson

Backstage at Maria Grachvogel a certain sort of beauty magic was happening, a look was being born that scored on every level - hair, make-up and nails.


L'Oreal Professionnel hairstylist Federico Ghezzi crafted a French braid through the hair on either side from the temple to the nape where they met, joined and flowed into one. The texture was super pretty and wispy.


Nails were opaque white, a look I have been championing for some time. A crisp white manicure, is like a staple white shirt it goes with everything and works for any season, so if you want to try the look now go for it!

The make-up was sandy, tan and tonal. A floating line (an emerging trend seen in different guises at Michael Kors and PPQ) elevated the look from a neutral look to something that more special.

That's my summer look sorted, it will take a lot for another show to trump this for me. Bring it on...
