Highlights and different coloured extensions adding streaks of copper, gold or rose-gold produce some fabulous patterns in your plait creating a very eye-catching look. I’ve seen some wonderful rainbow-colour highlights in side plaits from sea-green, indigo and purple on dark hair, to lavender and faded pink on fair hair!

New braiding styles
Last year’s side-braid hairstyles were messy and very loosely plaited, for a sort of country-maid look. However, this year messy is ‘out’ and the new plaited styles are completely fresh and different.

One of the most original new braiding styles is the flat, wide braid, which is easy to achieve once you’ve seen the photos in our latest side-braid hairstyles Inspiration Gallery below. The plaiting is medium-loose and then pulled out gently at the sides to make the weaving look flatter and wider.
The look is still casual and relaxed for a look that’s great for Boho everyday styling and can be made intricate and amazing in aninside-out braid, for evening wear.
