Like a garland headdress, a single braid woven across the top of the head is nothing if not romantic. Moreover, it's a brilliant alternative to hair clips for keeping hair off your face. Senior stylist Kyrin McKenna of the Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City calls this look an empire braid. It's so soft and elegant it even makes a sex kitten like Jessica Simpson look grown-up. It's a most perfect hairstyle in this fall season of rich, tailored and luxe fashion sensibilities.
