Second only to our obsession with all things weddings, braid styles and plait hairstyles are basically what we spend our life pinning.

When we’re not finding out how exactly Kate Bosworth nailed that backwards parting plait, or following step by steps of how to do a fishtail plait IRL, we’re spending way too much time imagining all the different intricate braids and super subtle plaits we could be doing.

From French and fishtail, to halo, ponytail and boxer braids, there’s almost too many A-list plait hairstyles we’re into. Do Pinterest boards have a maximum limit??

‘Braids are a great way to experiment and be more creative with your hair,’ says TONI&GUY Creative Director, Cos Sakkas. ‘In 2020 we’re seeing a move on from the traditional three strand plait into a more complex braid. Whether this is by adding more strands, incorporating fabric, or braiding around the hairline, leaving the ends loose.’

Sakkas’ celeb plait inspo? ‘Zendaya looks amazing with a plaited hairstyle – she looked stunning with her waist-long box braids at the Critics’ Choice awards.’

So next time you’re considering a braid, plait or basic updo, check out our edit of the best red-carpet styles because we’ve got all the braid inspo you could ever need right here.
