plait perfect

Are you rocking ultra-long braids—like gorgeous singer Keri Hilson? Even though wearing the plaits long and loose is the whole point of the look, we think it’s always a good idea to vary your style game. Here, take a page from Keri’s coif portfolio and try a partial upsweep. Directed off the face, lengths are brought together from each side to culminate in a low “bun” at the back while still leaving remaining lengths loose. Twist, twirl and pin in place to make this look your own. Easy. Effortless. Enchanting, indeed.
