Highlighting patterns

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.

Wide side-braids

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.
