TREND SPOTTING: FISHTAIL BRAID

by Christina


When it comes to styling my own hair, I tend to gravitate towards styles that can be achieved in a flash. Easy pony's, Loose waves and ballerina buns are all style staples on constant rotation for me.

Recently, I've spotted a fresh new trend on some of Hollywood's hottest starlets: The Fishtail Braid. Though this particular style has been around for ages (I remember rocking it my grammar school days!) it's been making quite the comeback, turning into summer's go to 'do.

 At first glance, Achieving the style appears to be complicated yet I assure you its actually a breeze to pull off. Here's how: Begin by separating your hair into two evenly divided sections. Then grab a small (close to half inch) piece of hair from the back of one section and wrap it around like so:

 Repeat this process on both sections of hair. You will begin to notice the fishtail pattern after a few strands have been tucked away. Continue this process until you get to the end of the braid.

Secure with a hair band, spritz your favorite spray to hold and your set! Easy hair, perfect for any occasion!
