Copy Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards’ Cool Parting Plait

Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards has been giving us some major hair-spiration with this too-cool new parting plait.

We’re always keeping an eye on top international stylist Aaron Carlo’s Instagram feed to copy his edgy celebrity styles.

As well as being stylist to the Little Mix ladies, he also regularly gets his hands on Millie Mackintosh and Lauren Pope’s luscious locks – talk about a good man to know.

And his latest braid on the Little Mix star – also seen in a layered version on bandmate Jade Thirlwall the week before – is one we will definitely be recreating at home.

Part cornrow, part french plait, it’s one cool hair hybrid. And it’ll only take you five minutes. 

First, section off an inch-wide piece of hair along your parting using a tail comb. 

Then braid the hair as close to the scalp as possible – the trick is pass the pieces of hair under each other, as opposed to over, that way the plait sits on top of the hair.

Finish with a spritz of hairspray to banish any flyaways and wait for the compliments to pour in!
