Tutorial Tuesday – Tousled Fishtail Braid

TT-fishtailtousleWe can’t help it. We are in love with fishtail braids this summer!

We wanted to update our fishtail braid tutorial. This summer, a side fishtail braid that has a messy look matches almost any outfit and feel.

You will need:

  • 1 Pony Tail
  • 1 Plastic/Rubber Elastic

Instructions:

Step 1: Start off with textured hair. Next day hair works best but you can also apply a hair texturizer. For our assistant, we did a side part and began the braid in the direction of the part.

Step 2: Add the elastic to keep the hair in one place.

Step 3: Split the hair into two sections with hair hands.

Step 4: Grab hair from one side of section 1. To give the fishtail look, grab the hair from the back of section 1.

Step 5: Cross over the hair grabbed in Step 4 to section 2 of your hair.

 

Step 6 & 7: Repeat but this time you will grab hair from the second section of your hair and cross it over to the first.

Step 8: Continue this process alternating from section 1 to section 2 until you are done. Tie the end of the braid with a ponytail.

Step 9: Cut the elastic carefully with scissors. Make sure to not cut strands of your hair!

Step 10: To add to the tousled look, pull lightly on the fishtail braid from top to bottom.

Tutorial Tuesday – Fishtail Twist

TT-fishtailtwistThis summer, we are a fan of all things braided for hairstyles. This one in particular is great for any situation – summer party, summer wedding (can you tell we are loving this for summer?).

NOTE: We suggest using clear elastics for a discreet look.

Instructions:

Step 1: Blow dry and straighten your hair. For a beachy look, add curls and waves.

Step 2: Take two sections above each ear and twist them backward.

Step 3: Once the two sections meet, secure the two strands with an elastic.

Step 4: Create a fishtail braid with the hair from the two twisted sections. To make sure the braid stays put, use a thin hair elastic at the end. (If you need a fishtail braid tutorial, follow these instructions.) Remove the first elastic.

Step 5: Spritz a shine spray and hairspray so your style lasts all night.

How To Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Messy Sidebraid Hairstyle

Blake Lively’s Chic Sidebraid Is A Hot Look For This Holiday Season

We don’t know about you but we LOVE Blake Lively’s effortlessly chic messy sidebraid hairstyle.  We are so enamored with the look, in fact, that we sought out our resident Beauty Place stylist and asked her “How do we get the look?!”  Here, her advice on how to achieve the of-the-moment hairstyle yourself.

1.  You want to build up texture by prepping hair with a texturizing spray, such as CHI Infra Dual Texture Hairspray.

2.  Then you want to create extra body and bounce by drying your hair with a diffuser. We like the CHI Rocket Professional Hairdryer.

3.  Use your fingers to rake your hair to one side and create two ponytails by fastening both the top and the bottom with elastic bands.

4.  Pull out the top section and create a fishtail braid.

5.  Next, add a festive clip to the base of the ponytail. (Lively wore a vintage Chanel brooch here.)

And voila!  You are rocking one of the best hairstyles of the season.

How to do a Fishtail Braid

Fishtail braids are quite stylish these days. When I see them, I think they look pretty simple to do…if I could only see the technique done at least once. Well, I finally saw it! And of course, I’m going to share the “how-to” with you!

First, prep your hair:

  • Apply a smoothing balm like BioSilk Smoothing Balm to clean hair and blow dry.
  • For best results, follow with It’s a 10 Miracle Styling Serum and flat iron your hair.
  • Start Braiding:

  • Divide into 2 sections like a regular braid
  • You should also keep your hair in two separate sections throughout.
  • Grab a small amount from the outside edge of one side (lets say the left side) and cross it over to the other (right) side.
  • Next grab a small amount from the outside edge of the other side (right) and cross it over to the (left) side.
  • Continue alternating sides and doing the same thing until you reach the ends.
  • When grabbing pieces of hair from the outside edge, make sure the pieces are small. Otherwise, using big chunks of hair will just look like a regular braid.
  • Once you’ve reached the ends of your hair, secure the braid with a hair tie.
  • Then, lightly tug at the two sides of the set braid to slightly loosen.
  • Please share your thoughts and comments!
