3 best back to school plaits

Plaits are all the rage – but which will you adopt for the best 'back to school' style? Here are 3 easy, up-to-date looks to rock the plait back at the office, or out in recess - whatever your grade!

The high braid

Pulled tight, and neatly plaited, the high braid is structured and serious, but give a little twist to this uniform by adding hoops or accessories to stand out from the rest of the class. The higher plait keeps hair out of your eyes when you're trying to study, so for an A+ result, hold in place and slick back those flyaways by using L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure.

The side frame braid

Ever since Daenerys Targaryen dazzled on screen with her platinum blonde side plaits, the face framing micro braid has become a classic. The stuff of story books; part angelic mermaid, part hippie chick, the classic plait of mythical princesses adds a touch of romance to any look. Stay top of the class with great looking, healthy hair thanks to the L'Oréal Professionnel's Serie Expert Inforcer range including shampoo, conditioner and masque!

The bun-ny braid

Somewhere between a ponytail, a bun and a braid, this is a new generation plait that offers practicality, elegance and a touch of whimsy. Whether you're taking charge of an important meeting or dancing at an after work do, this hybrid style is minimal effort for maximum impact. To get the gloss and enhance those tones, put a little overtime in to your hair with L'Oréal Pro Fiber, to help repair damaged locks and give you that high shine and deep hydration that will get you extra credit. Looking to funk it up a bit more? Why not ask your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist about #COLORFULHAIR and go for a new, vibrant color that will get you top marks.
