Editor’s tip: Before creating your loose braid wash your hair with the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Shampoo and Conditioner. Then apply the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Thickening Balm through your hair before blowdry. This range will give your hair lift, adding body, and make your braid look lovely and full.
2. It’s super easy to create

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.
6. 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.
