Hairstyle How-To Video: The Messy Fishtail Plait

Plaits are always a winner on the hairstyle front – they require minimum effort, but reap maximum results, because they look like they’ve taken you forever to do! The fishtail is the plaited style we’re lusting after right now, and with Blake Lively and Rachel Zoe sporting the celebrity hair trend of the moment, we’re keen to jump on the bandwagon too! Wear your plait in a messy side-ponytail, because not only will it take you half the time of a normal fishtail, but by bringing the hair over your shoulder you can see what you’re doing as well. We’re pretty sure that if you start practising now, you’ll have your ’do nailed just in time for your Saturday night out.
