Grecian-inspired rope braids crowned models heads and swung down their backs at Fendi-perhaps an ode to Medusa? While the rest of the shows delivered dip-dyed ends and voluminous beehives (we also loved the milkmaid braids at Emilio Pucci), hairstylist Sam McKnight wanted to create a dark nordic look for Fendi. “It’s almost Victorian, not fairytale,” he explained. The stylist weaved all the braids by hand, slathering strands in Sebastian Forte Strong Hold Gel before meticulously twisting them into place.
