There's no denying the A-list love a plait (or braid as it's called in the US). These woven hairstyles are so versatile that the stars embrace them day or night, and for pretty much every occasion from the beach to the red carpet.
Kristen Stewart wore her hair down at the Teen Choice Awards this week but adorned it with a tiny plaits proving it isnt just reserved for up-dos.
Side plaits are incredibly popular with everyone from Blake Lively and Lea Michele to Whitney Port and Victoria Beckham. And you don't just have to stick with a traditional three-strand braid as proved by Emmy Rossum who weaved an uneven side plait (get the look by using different sized sections and not being neat with your technique).
While fishtail plaits add extra interest - Blake Lively wore hers fat and fluffy, while Demi Lovato wore hers blue. Other plaits come in the form of Jessie J's French braid, Beyonce's corn rows, Rihanna's 'hairband' braid and Jessica Alba's pigtail plaits.
