Tearing out hair.

So I have a character who wears her hair in a plait down her back. At some point in the story, she is grabbed by this plait by a creature with sharp teeth. I intend for her to escape, but to have her plait torn. Is it likely that the whole plait would be torn off or more likely that only some of the hair would be removed? I assume there would also be some tearing of the skin, but am I right to also assume that the injuries would not be too serious?

ETA: I'm not sure I will have the hair in a plait after all, since comments (and thankyou for those!) suggest that that would be unlikely to tear enough for the victim to make an escape.
