Plaits have really taken off this year especially in our Manchester salon, there’s such a variety of styles for different occasions. Whether it is for work, glamming it up and going out, or for exercise, plaits suit any occasion.

Plenty of plait hairstyles to choose from

Plaited styles are great for all different hair types and particularly help to give thin or fine hair some exciting styling variety.  They also work with layered hair.  There are now so many options to choose from. Styles include single, French, halo, side, double, fishtail, loose, half, messy, heidi and box, to name but a few.

What’s good is you don’t have to have long hair to make the most of plaits. You can always have one attached as an extension. In fact, we’ve got a list of super stockists so get in touch is braids and plaits are your thing but you’ve got short hair.

How to select the right plait for you

When choosing an ideal plait to suit you, it helps to factor in:Plait hairstyle idea 2 Melissa Timperley Salons

  • Your face shape – oval, square, round – as different plaits lend themselves to different shapes.
  • Forehead length – a long forehead can seem longer with certain plait styles.
  • Fringe length – you don’t want it looking at odds with the rest of your plaited look.
  • Outfit – if you are plaiting up for a
    particular occasion, make sure it’s going to work well with and enhance the outfit you’ve selected.

A visit to a hair stylist is a great way to get guidance on the best plait style for you. What’s more, it means you won’t have to practise endlessly in front of the mirror or researching numerous YouTube videos to get the look you want.

Braided to last

What’s also good about plaits and braids is that they often give you a longer-lasting hair style so, for example, plaiting up on a Friday can give you a fabulous look for the whole weekend.  This is often why they’re ‘the must-have’ at festivals.
