SPRING TREND: Fearne Cotton’s Prada inspired plait

SPRING TREND: Fearne Cotton’s Prada inspired plait

Fearne Cotton rocked last night at the BRIT Awards with her Prada inspired plait, a hot spring ’10 hair trend.

Hairdresser Mark Hill created a fabulous side plait to accompany Fearne’s vintage inspired outfit, perfect for red carpet glamour with an edgy twist.

Long side braids were spotted on the spring ’10 catwalks at Prada, Missoni, Cavalli and Mcqueen- a perfect way to update any look, see James White Hair.

To re-create the look, Mark Hill said: “I blow dried Fearne’s hair using Va Va Voom Blow Dry Mousse to give root lift on the top and crown sections and a large radial brush to smooth and add natural movement.

“Then, from a side parting, the majority of her hair was loosely taken back into a side ponytail – only the front section was left out. I then weaved the pony tail into a fish-tail plait, securing the ends with a clear band.

“This plait should be thick and chunky, never too neat, so small pieces were allowed to stray from the main bulk.

“Once plaited, the front section of her hair was taken back and secured just behind her ear using a vintage style clip, leaving the ends to fall naturally over her shoulder to balance the style and add softness.

“A final spritz of Diamond Shine Spray protected the style on the red carpet from the damp weather and gave Fearne’s hair a great shine.”
