Following on from the success of last month’s DIY Nail Art story we called on you again… this time, we wanted to see your plaits. The response was amazing (you are a talented bunch!). We picked our favourite plaits and asked their creators to share with us just how they did it. Read on, you might pick up a tip or two, we certainly did.
 Prep your hair with a texturising product so that it isn’t too soft. This will help the plait hold longer.
 Part your hair on the side and begin French plaiting the larger section of hair.
 To make this plait slightly different from a French, on each wrap drop the top section of hair and replace with a strand to the side.
 Continue this technique around the head, working at an angle.
 Once you get to the nape of your neck secured with a clear elastic so the hair remaining falls loose as a ponytail.
 Loop the remaining hair through a hair doughnut (you can pick one up from Boots). Backcomb the loose hair and pin around the doughnut to form a bun.
