Plaits are a casual way to make hair look chic and polished when it's unruly, dirty or just not co-operating. It's been a favourite style of the bohemian culture for ages and the fishtail plait has even become quite fashion forward. In the last week alone, we've seen Blake Lively filming season three of Gossip Girl sporting a low-slung plait, Julia Styles was spotted strolling around Soho in New York City and Rumer Willis dressed up her fishtail at the Teen Choice Awards. Even Vanessa Hudgens looked pretty in a long plait at a talk show appearance. I love how this simple look can be so stylish. Do you ever wear your hair in a single plait?
