Until a few years ago, plaits were never deemed ‘fashionable’. They were often left alone for fear of looking like a 10-year-old girl. However the likes of Whitney Port, Rihanna and Blake Lively have since stormed the red carpets with glorious braided locks, making plaits the must have hair trend this year.
Step 1 – Split the hair into three sections, like you would your standard plait.
Step 2 - Begin plaiting through the hair, like a French plait, however each time you go to pick up more hair, drop the strand you have and pick up a new section (remember to hold it tightly away from the head to keep the plait from looking sloppy).
Step 3 – Continue towards the back of the head, continuing the pick up and drop method seen in step 2.
Step 4 – Once you’ve reached the desired plait length, secure it tightly with Kirby grips to ensure it doesn’t fall out.
