4 Low-slung plait

Fashion Quarterly - - Beauty -

When we saw this on the run­way, we were in­ter­ested, but when Ash­ley Olsen wore it to the Met Gala — tucked into the col­lar of her coat — we were hooked. Danny says un­done styles like this one are grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity. “They’re soft, ro­man­tic and sexy, and have the added bonus of be­ing rel­a­tively easy to achieve.” Given it’s so loose, lots of tex­tur­is­ing spray will be your best friend when cre­at­ing this look.


1. Start with day-two hair — if your locks are too clean, your style will flop. Wet hair and let it air-dry, scrunch­ing as it dries, or use a dryer with a dif­fuser on low.

2. Spray your hair lib­er­ally from roots to ends with Davines This

Is A Dry Tex­tur­izer, $45, scrunch­ing it through as it dries.

3. Draw your hair into a low, loose pony­tail, then braid the ends. Se­cure the bot­tom of the plait with an­other hair tie.

4. Fin­ish with Oribe Su­perfine

Hair Spray, $56.
