Hairstyle How-To Video: The Rope Plait


Looking for a spring summer 2015 hair trend that is easy to do, and looks great? Well, you’ve come to the right place because we’ve got the ultimate how-to video for one of the biggest hair trends of the summer…the rope plait!


Spotted at Donna Karan SS15 show in New York, hairstylist Eugene Souleiman came up with the concept and since, we haven’t stopped wanted to know how to do it ourselves at home. Well, until now.


So we’ve teamed up with L’Oreal Paris, and their hair ambassador Syd Hayes, so he can show us exactly how to recreate the look at home. All you need are your fingers to recreate this new take on the twisted plait, and a cute bit of ribbon to tie around the bottom, and you’ll be good to go.


For more hair-inspiration check out our celebrity gallery of all the amazing plaits they’ve been rocking recently. Including Khloe Kardashian’s cornrow pigtails and Kate Bosworth’s take on a plaited up do, we love them all! And you don’t have to have long hair to sport them, there’s inspo for crops and short hair too. 


We expect to see lots of gorgeous braids across the country…now don’t disappoint us ladies!
