MBFW Swim Trend: Braids

When going to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim you expect to see babes, bikinis, and Benz's. But it seems that this year a new B was added to the mix: Braids! Thanks to sisters and business partners Sandi and Kailey and their talented team from Blo Midtown (3301 NE 1st Avenue, Suite 102, Miami, Florida), there was nary a pretty head not rocking a trendy braided 'do both on and off the runway.

I sat down with Diana from Blo Midtown while visiting the Escape Beauty Lounge at the Sagamore Hotel on Saturday. She was a brave girl taking on the challenge of my braiding my thick, long hair. It was an extremely humid day and the only way I could survive, would be to have something done with my hair.

As you can tell from the above photo, she did an AMAZING job! I looked cool (and felt even cooler) for the rest of the night. My friend Meli from Melificent.com got there a bit earlier and I totally fell in love with the funky 'do she had done.

The ladies at Blo Midtown are known for much more than just braids. They can create fabulous up do's, the perfect pony, and give you the perfect blow dry with or without waves or curls. Annette got me red carpet ready with a smokin' hot, teased 'do with a delicate braid on each side for Premios Juventud just two days before the Escape Lounge.

The best example of their work was all over the runway during Swim Week. Models at the Nanette Lepore, Zingara, Vix, and Agua Clara (to name a few), rocked styles by the very same artists you will find at Blo Midtown. My favorite of all Fashion Week was the golden fishtail braid from L*Space shown in the main photo up top, left.
