Oh how the pig-tail braids from our preschool years have evolved and transformed into such a trend for this season. The longer and the more tousled and romantic, the sexier the do! From fishtails, to french braids, to the waterfall, to mini braids interwoven in to the hair, to braids tucked in to buns, to the crown braid and MORE, everyone is having a plait party and braids are kinda a big deal this season. Even celebrities have joined the plait party!
