The Best Plaits On Instagram

If you're not on social media and somehow missed the buzz last month surrounding Kim Kardashian's #boxerbraids, we're here to remind/inform you that the hottest hairstyle of the moment is the double Dutch plait or classic corn row as they've been known as for centuries.
