After watching St Trinian’s for the 1 millionth time the other day I decided to teach myself how to do a fishtail plait. A Fishtail plait is more unusual than a normal plait and only uses two chunks of hair- I think it gives a more trendy look to the traditional three braided plait.
Celebs from Cheryl Cole, Rihanna and Cher LLoyd have tried and tested out the fishtail plait:

I love all braids and plaits at the moment from plaited headbands to the herringbone plait, I can’t get enough. If you wan’t to add a more bohemian look to your plait why not try pulling a few strands out and back-combing it slightly to make it look a little more messy. Another trick to try is creating your own headband out of your own hair like Pixie Lott has done here, and embellishing it with a few flowers for an ethereal vibe.

Similarly, if you don’t have the time to do this yourself you can always buy one such as the one on ASOS which costs just £8
