On or off duty, slick or tousled, 2016 is slowly becoming the year of the braid. Flashback to the 2000s when small, piecey plaits were infiltrating the scalps of over-bronzed celebs – this is not the same thing, think Girl Boss attitude instead.

Spotted amongst the who’s who of Paris Fashion Week, this look is fastened to add polish to your chaotic schedule. Plus it doubles as a quick fix for anyone battling the beast that is frizz.

Take your Anti-Static Comb and two hair ties. Give your hair a spritz of hairspray and comb back into a pony tail at the back of your head. Plait your hair tightly and fasten the end with a hair tie.
