Plait Hairstyle Ideas for All Occasions
By Kate on 6 November 2011
Add a pretty touch to your hair with the help of a plait, and these great hairdo ideas.
If you think that plaits don't have a place in the office then think again. Using plaits in your hairstyles can create a professional, polished style that will not only look great, but can also keep your hair off your face with a tidy and sophisticated finish. Try something similar to this look and plait your hair length up and around your head like a headband.
Party Hair - Fun Plaits
While you want to look great for a party, you also don't want to look too overdone. This is where a casual yet chic fishtail plait can come in handy. By scooping all of your hair to one side and side styling it into a loose fishtail plait, you can create a hairdo that will give you a flirty and fun look but is still fancy enough to suit any type of party.
Wedding Hair - Formal Plaits
Plaits can also work well for weddings or any formal event. By incorporating plaits into a bun or stylish updo, you can add some pretty texture to your hair. Team your plaits with ribbons or flowers for a romantic touch, or some really great earrings or hair pins.
Everyday Hair - Half Up Half Down Plaits
If your everyday look consists of pulling your hair back into a half up half down hairstyle or a ponytail because they are quick and simple styles then consider taking a few extra minutes of hair styling time to add some plaits. That way it looks like some effort had been put into you hairdo, but you haven't had to spend a lot of extra time on your hair.
