Loose plaits: 5 reasons why you need to try the trend now
1. It’s super easy to create
Who needs to be spending hours on their hair every morning when you can spend more time in bed? Loose plaits will not only allow more time for beauty sleep but will also wow all your colleagues when you make into work.
And any braid rookies out there can rest assured that they too can give the style a try, because the messier the finish, the more style points you’ll earn! Credit: @jaggerscloset_shop
2. It will make you feel like a boho Queen
If you’re anything like us, you will love pretty boho tresses. Get the look by wearing your hair in a braided style over night and in the morning you will have soft, heatless curls, which you can then show off in this Sophie Turner-approved hairstyle.
Editor’s tip: Emulate Sophie’s waves at home by using a few pumps of the VO5 Wave Creation Foam through your lengths, which will help add to that gorgeous lived-in texture.
3. The fuss-free style can be worn anywhere
What we love most about loose plait hairstyles, is that they can be worn anywhere and any time. Don’t believe us? Try us…
4. They can be dressed up
If you have a special occasion lined up, why not dress up your loose plait hairstyle with a strip of ribbon? Make like Emily Ratajkowski and finish your look off with a black satin ribbon secured around the end of the braid.
Alternatively, you can try a ribbon headband or weaving ribbon through your braid for a unique, showstopping finish.
5. It’s A-list approved
Not only is this style loved by Pinterest fans, but A-list stars like Elizabeth Olsen, Drew Barrymore and Whitney Port have also been spotted wearing the style at red carpet events and movie premieres. See, we told you it can be worn anywhere.
