Braids and plaits have been weaving their way up and down the catwalks, and through the tresses of celebs, for quite a while now. But for the time-poor, rusk stick-rich rest of us, braids have all too often been filed away on our To Do List for 2016, because at the moment, there’s simply no way in hell we have the time to fiddle around with an intricate hairstyle. Which is a crying shame because braids can be spectacular.
But never fear. We’ve found a bunch of fast yet awesome braid-based hairstyles that can be done in minutes. So you can be on trend and on time.

Do you plait your hair regularly, or are you afraid of the braid?
