Pick a Plait

Braids continue to trend in the beauty world.

They're popping up at weddings and prom, on beauty bloggers and at salons as quick add-on services. Beyond the standard French, Dutch and fishtail bread-and-butter, stylists are finding ways to upgrade a basic braid. 

Three Instagram-famed stylists (@blohaute, @lalasupdos and @heatherchapmanhair) known for their plaiting skills showcase next-level styles—and not a single French braid is to be seen.
