Plaits have been an unmissable hair trend for a long time now, but this year the intricate updos, halo braids, and fishtail headbands have softened up, with stars wearing their plaits a lot looser and more casual, swept gently over one shoulder. The look is soft and lived-in and great for lazy days, but it works surprisingly well with formal looks, too. It's also a style that's made for hair extensions as it perfectly hides the join between real hair and added lengths, so even if your hair only falls to the shoulders, with a few strategically placed clip-ins, you can re-create these styles. Click on through for some celeb inspiration, and try this out next time your hair's falling a little bit flat.
