Easy wavy braid / plaits hairstyles & haircuts

Plaits or braids are hairstyles which are created by intertwining sections of hair with each other. They need a minimum of three sections for a regular braid. The complicated ones need more enhancements and styling. In this article, we will go through some plait hairstyles which you can follow with your natural wavy hair. If you style your hair wavy because it suits your look, you can also try these out when you hair is wavy or even slightly messy. Wavy strands usually turn out to make messy plaits but they look more natural and stylish.

A regular plait would include brushing all the strands at the back, and then making three equal sections to intertwine. When you have wavy hair and if they are also cut in layers, you might have some strands falling short to do the initial length of the plait. Let those strands create a nice style in the front, while you brush the rest back to the braided hair. In the picture below, we have a similar example to second this idea.
