Inspirational Monday: Fishtail Braids

Fishtails

I've loved fishtails braid since they made their apparence on the Fall 2011 runway. They are like the rebel sister to the regular braid. I have been waiting for my hair to grow long enough to actually pull one so finally I discovered my hair was a bit long enough to pull of two braids then I knew it was time to try and do fishtail braids. Well thanks to Lauren Conrad and The Beauty Department for their hair tutorials and for teaching me the easiest way to pull one off:







Since my hair is still layered the fishtails came out a bit messy, which I'm okay with since I'm a fan of the messier braids. Plus it helped that on Saturday it was a bit chiller out so I was able to cover some of the messiness with a beanie:











What do you think of the fishtail braid?

  6. I love the fishtail braid! Only thing is that my hair is layered and I have fine asian hair that just slides out of braids PLUS I don't like putting hair products on because they make my hair TOO oily. I have too many hair problems on my head ;)
