I have been obsessed with this hair trend lately. It took one watch of a tutorial on Youtube and I was hooked on creating this Fishtail braid. I think it's unique and it looks messy yet sophisticated.
Once you have seen how to create this braid, it adds a whole new look into your routine. I was getting sick of putting my hair up into a top knot, don't get me wrong I do still love the top knot but sometimes I want to switch things up a bit. Also, braiding your hair is good for it, it keeps it in great condition.
The great thing about this braid is you can dress it up or dress it down. I tend to do the side braid the most for work as I think it looks quite sophisticated but interesting. As the ladies at work say "it's a plait but not a normal plait".
I have seen many celebs wearing this braid quite loose too and I quite like that look. I need to work on creating that style. I do tend to have trouble with my hair because it tends to slip out of shape, so when creating a loose look it may eventually just all fall out! But I will work on a solution to that problem and will let you guys know in the future.
I also like to create two braids as well, this is a more casual look for me. It's more fun than the single braid. Great for a day of spring cleaning wearing denim dungarees!
Anyway, this is a great look and definitely on trend at the minute. I will leave a tutorial for you all to learn this style of braid too and once you know how you'll be just as addicted as me!
