Creating catwalk plaits with natural hair styling products

Creating catwalk plaits with natural hair styling products
'Messy dressy' plaits were prominent on the spring catwalks and fashionistas can use natural hair styling products to create the versatile style.

Sue Moxley, writing for the Mirror, pointed out that the look does not mean reverting to the pigtails from your school days. Instead it has a loose and undone feel.

TONI&GUY artistic director Indira Schauwecker also recently picked up on the trend, saying that natural textures will be embraced this year as care-free and wind-swept hair is a key fashion.

To create the plaited look, Ms Moxley recommended that women use a volumising natural hair styling product then backcomb their hair, which is essential for an updo.

'Once you have plenty of volume in your hair, drag it to one side and begin to plait quite tightly, securing at the bottom,' she advised.

Women then need to ease the braid apart, loosening it with their fingers and releasing the odd strand of hair, Ms Moxley explained.

Another natural hair styling product - hairspray - is required to hold the finish off the style and hold it in place.
