Fishy

Fishtail braids have always been near and dear to my heart. When I was a little girl, my mom would braid my long, blond hair in fishtail braids all the time. It was my favorite hair-do, and now that I am an adult, (ehem, almost 30)...it is still totally cool, fun, and chic.

One of my best friends did her hair in a side fish tail on her wedding day this past Saturday, and it was nothing short of perfection and straight fabulous. She looked amazing and after seeing fishtails everywhere as of late, I just had to post this tutorial and some lovely images. Now, get to braiding! XoX

So cute...adds a little something, a little cuteness to just a ponytail.

I have seen these many times but had no idea what's it called or how to do it. Your inspiration pictures look beautiful. I just watched the how-to video and the instructions are easy to follow, too!

Thanks girl for this lovely post and also entering my giveaway!

Have a fabulous rest of the week!

I love the look of this braid, however I've never been gifted in the braiding dept, or perhaps it is bc i have so many layers. the steps seem easy enough I'll have to give it a try!

I LOVE the fishtail braid! But I don't like trying to do the fishtail braid, because I grow frustrated! A video might do the trick for me :)

Oh fun! Love these, but it's when I need a girlfriend where we can do each other's hair. It's hard to do on my own. So pretty.
