These two trending styles are bold, artistic and fearless. We're putting the braided bun and the mohawk braid in the ring together – who'll come out the winner?
The hairstyle: slicked back on the top and sides, this sleek and glossy look hides a surprise at the back – tight, precise braids up the back of the scalp that create a sculptural silhouette and add contrasting texture to the smooth bun. Ballerina-street-chic.
The style: this is one for the brave ladies among us who want their hairstyle to reflect their quirky but powerful personalities. Because the look is so striking, avoid distracting the eye with too many accessories or printed fabrics.
What the editors say: You'll need a talented friend or professional stylist for this look, which you can't compromise on. The braids need to be precise and clean, the bun shouldn't have a hair out of place, and the top should be so shiny you can see your face in it! For superior hold, the Tecni.ART Air Fix fixing spray is extra strong and contains an anti-frizz formula.
The hairstyle: the mohawk is back, but this time it's going post-modern, in the form of a head-turning braid that looks like a sculpture/helmet/mane. Worn on copper-colored hair, you couldn't get much more on-trend if you tried.
The style: getting bored of your regular hairstyles? This is the one for you! Teamed with a warrior-princess-inspired outfit, you'll be more than ready for the next season of Game of Thrones.
What the editors say: while you might instinctively think this is a hard look, at second glance it shows a feminine side, with wisps and curls gently and subtly framing the face. Again, it's best to go to a professional for this kind of complex styling. Wild Stylers Crêpage de Chignon by Tecni.ART will help fix the hair in place and give you a textured finish.
