A little bit vintage-inspired, very much effortless: this textured plait well and truly caught our eye when we spotted it in the pages of Elle France’s July 2014 issue. Worn by Lara Stone, the brilliant thing about the style is that it’s so simple, yet so effective – and you can create it for yourself with these easy steps.

Clamp the wrapped-around hair with a straightening iron to set it firmly in place, and then spray with more hairspray if needed.
