Summer Weekend Looks: A Fishtail Braid!

Hello, Lovies!

I've been a busy, busy gal but I'm trying to be really good about my posting..I don't want ya to forget about me! I've been into slightly more interesting looks lately as it relates to my hair and one style I've been wanting to try out is the fishtail braid. It's similar to a french braid but more intricate looking. I did this style on hair that was braided in large plaits and the front section of hair was put into rollers. This is a messier version on me but I'll post a close up of a more polished braid in the next post.


Adding a few rolls instantly seems to make this look more rockabilly. I like it!
I'll have to take another photo of the t-shirt I'm wearing, it's vintage and from my beloved's grandma.


I was inspired so I gave it a try and rushed it a bit because I had to head out but I checked online for videos and there are tons of tutorials out there! Luxyhair has an amazingly gorgeous tutorial showing you the steps to creating this cute, beachy do - perfect for lounging poolside with a mimosa in one hand and your favorite book in the other...so check out her video below and givie it a whirl!


 
Alright, so now you've got the steps in order right? In the next post, I'll show an after hours, polished version of the fishtail braid.  Stay tuned!
