If you thought that milkmaid plaits just for girly girls, think again. Beyonce's out to prove that versatile the hairstyle, which is a favourite with the likes of Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger can be super sexy too.
Bey posted an album on her I Am Beyonce Tumblr today, which showcase a look she rocked on a recent night out with her sister Solange. Wearing a matching metallic pink crop top and skirt with vertiginous Charlotte Olymia heels, the Drunk In Love singer had her blonde tresses styled in a neat braid, with soft and sleek strands framing her face. Plaits certainly have the potential to look a little too pretty (not ideal for clubbing), but Beyonce's bleached locks had the edge teamed with chunky earrings to toughen up the look. Plus, she gets full marks for keeping her makeup simple and letting her hair halo do the talking.
Queen Bey was photographed grinding with a bottle of Veuve Cliucquot in her hands and despite her wild antics the plait ensured that not a hair fell out of place.
Even if you haven’t got a big night out planned anytime soon, we think this look is perfect for the current stormy weather. Pesky flyaways can be dealt with swiftly and efficiently with a quick plait. Want in? Stock up oo beauty goodies from ghd.
