Fishtailin' It

To me, nothing oozes "effortless style" like an over-the-shoulder fishtail braid.  No, my current obsession with the hairstyle did not start with that Frozen movie's Elsa character.  I apologize in advance if your child has subjected you to watching that film over and over again, or if you yourself are a big fan.  I just can't do animated films, no matter how amazing people say they are- it's not my style.  I'm more of a Tarantino fan.  Nonetheless, I loooove a good fishtail braid and have always envied ladies with long, lustrous locks who can whip one up and throw it over their shoulder carelessly.  It's equal parts sweet and sexy:

It's a versatile look- whether going to the lake or beach, or dressing up for a big event, a fishtail braid can work for a variety of occasions. 

Want to amp up the sweet AND sexy?  Fishtail pigtail braids (say that 10 times fast)!  This is my ultimate hair dream:

As a perpetual bob-er for most of my life, I've spent the last few years growing out my locks.  We aren't quite there yet, but I see fishtail braids in my (somewhat near) future.  Ohhhh the excitement.  Want to try the look yourself?  Go here for a fishtail braid tutorial.

Are you a fan of this look?!


  1. Sam! This would look lovely on you! Where is your version? I'd love to see! Perfect summer hair! Have always been a huge fan of your blog, xoxo

  2. I usually just do a normal braid, but I'm totally going to do a fishtail braid tomorrow. Such an effortless and classy hairstyle! Perfect for Day 2 hair too :)

  3. That braid looks so girly, natural and sexy, but I'm not sure If I can do it by myself.
