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.
