We spoke to Neil Barton, Creative Director of Neil Barton Hairdressing and Goldwell Ambassador to find how to make them work for your client.

‘Jessica Hart sets off her uber-chic white gown with a plaited updo, and completely pulls this off. Her hair is pulled gently off her face with a slight backcomb to create a little volume and texture. The milkmaid braids were delicately feathered to create a loose, undone look that I am loving.’

‘Kate Hudson proves that braids are back and here to stay! She has kept her braid un-done and low key, opting for a messy side plait which is loosely braided with a beach wave inspired look. The texture works perfectly for this time of year.’

‘Rocking the braid trend like a pro is Little Mix star, Perrie Edwards. Her bold, double french plait hairdo has been tightened through the top and slightly loosened towards the ends to create volume. Perrie Edwards – I salute you! She really pulls off this look.’
