VIDEO: How to Create The 'Unicorn Twists' From Public School's Spring 2016 Runway Show

Runway hair is not for the weak. It isn’t often that you attend a fashion show and come away thinking you could actually recreate the same stunning hairstyle that pros perfected on models, but Public School’s Spring/Summer 2016 show was a sweet exception. Aveda stylists complimented Dao Yi-Chow and Maxwell Osborne’s layered looks with minimalist hair, a delightful non-braid that one stylist dubbed “unicorn twists.”

Unlike some of the more complex plaits we’ve spotted on runways, Public School’s version of the braid is fresh, modern and elementary. If you have two thin rubber bands, a mirror, hairspray, smoothing creme, and five spare minutes in the morning, you can easily copy this look in four easy steps. Here’s how:

1. Brush your hair into a ponytail that sits neither too high nor low on the head and secure with a thin rubber band. Tame flyaways by using a spray like Aveda Air Control Hair Spray, which was all the rage among stylists at Public School.

2. Take one medium-thick strand of hair and wrap it around the rubber band, securing it with bobby pins, so that the rubber band is completely covered. This simple step elevates your look and takes it from schoolgirl to elegant in a snap.

3. Now comes the fun part: separate the hair in your ponytail into two sections and begin twisting each section of hair. As you twist, weave each section of hair together (as you would for a braid). Secure your unicorn twist with a second thin rubber band.

4. Lastly, mix a drop or two of Aveda Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme into the palms of your hands before applying to the length of your twist to help fight frizz and keep your twists in place.

Another reason to try this style ASAP? The gorgeous, natural waves you’ll get to enjoy once you unravel your twists. You can’t lose with this simple rendition of the classic braid.
