Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have noticed that braids are everywhere, and they’re bigger, better, and more beautiful than ever before. From fishtail to French, Mohawk to boho, there’s no going wrong when it comes to this hair trend. The only problem? The more elaborate styles aren’t so easy to do yourself. Now, thanks to Pastels Salon and its brilliant new braid bar, a brand new hair concept in the UAE, the solution to getting the perfect plait has finally arrived. Even better news? You’re in and out in just 15 minutes. Marvelous.

Alternatively, if you’re not quite sure what you want, the Pastels team will provide you with an iPad loaded with inspiration pics and will help you pick the best braid for you. There’s no washing or blow-drying involved, so the plait process is quick and easy, making it the perfect way to upgrade your look before a last-minute evening event.
