Beauty school; THIS WEEK.. HOW TO DO A SIDE PLAIT.

Byline: YOUR WEEKLY MASTERCLASS BY MIRROR STYLE EDITOR DINAH TURNER

A feminine side plait is a summer essential. They were big news on the catwalk and a hit on red carpets - I love Kate Hudson's low-maintenance look, left. And the great news is this celebrity favourite is easier to achieve than you think. Whatever your age or hair type, make a statement with this simple style. Here's how: 1 Separate a section of hair on the side you want the plait to fall and tie back the rest. The more hair, the thicker it will be. You may find it easier with damp hair to add a little mousse to prevent flyaway wisps.

2 Take an inch from the top of the section and separate into three bits, keeping them apart in your fingers. Start a normal plait by taking the right strand and crossing it over the middle and then left over the middle again.

3 Tuck the rest of your hair behind the ear out of the way until you have a foundation to work from, then you can reintroduce it slowly. Try and keep the plait tight to your head - you can loosen it out later.

4 Continue braiding until you run out of hair before pulling the plait around the back of your head and pinning it in place.

5 Release the rest of the hair to cover. If you want a messy look gently ruffle the plait with your fingers to loosen strands.
