Braids, pleats, or plaits—whatever you call them, we’re absolutely loving all things twisted in hair this season. Beautylish brings you the three hottest braid trends this season and three easy braid DIY tutorials to replicate the look yourself.
Who needs a headband when you can make one from your hair! We’re loving this European, Heidi-inspired front braid that you can style into an updo or wear with your hair down. See how easy it is to give yourself a plait with Imogen’s tutorial.
It’s easy to give your braids a little extra something with ribbons, flowers, bows, and any other accessories you can think of. Evalina incorporates beautiful orchids into her cascading bang braid (right).
The fishtail braid (or Herringbone braid) became a popular trend among celebrities and fashion mavens this year, and we too adore the sea-inspired style. To give your otherwise intricate plait a beachy-chic edge, loosen and take out some strands after you finish, like Ashlyn’s fishtail (right).
