A New Year – a new look?

Well, Christmas is behind us. The Spring / Summer Next catalogue’s already arrived and everyone’s talking about a new start for 2013. Have you thought about changing how your hair looks?

Those faithful straightening irons may get a holiday because plaits could well be big news this year. This is one trend that can be used by nearly everyone.

Give yourself a great new look with plaits - the hot new hairstyling trend for Spring / Summer 2013!
One famous name riding the latest styling wave is X-Factor stylist, Jamie Stevens. He’s already been weaving his magic on X-Factor contestant Ella Henderson on our TV screens and says:

“There’s no getting away from plaiting and braiding this season. Its emerged as a key trend on the Autumn and Winter catwalk at shows from Fendi, Mulberry and Pucci. They’re great – it’s an easy way to jazz up a hairstyle and so versatile with so many different types of textures and placement. Plaits can look young, edgy, classical or very romantic.”

Plaiting’s all about where its done and how its placed, says Jamie. You can wear a plait on its own or blend them with another hairstyle to give a unique look all your own. Jamie suggests:

“You can incorporate plaits into a whole other style – maybe into a topknot to create a different texture and you can even plait within your plaits, for example plaiting each strand of a 3 strand plait, before plaiting them together!” suggested Jamie.

“The best thing is, plaiting’s now all about looking undone, so you don’t have to worry about making it look too perfect and its an easy way to change up your style from day to evening”.
