Here in Florida, spring has sprung. What that means for me is that my hair will likely never be seen free flowing again until October. A standard low-pony, while efficient, is not as good as a braid if you want to keep your hair from sticking to a perspiring back while getting some sun this spring. For timing reasons, I usually stick to a normal braid but when I can lock the kids out of my bathroom for a few extra minutes I go for the side fishtail braid and top with a fedora. It’s an easy, sexy spring look. See for yourself…
Don’t worry if you think it looks too messy while you are braiding. That’s the whole point. Very Lady Guinevere.
Absolutely perfect for a spring wedding.
I am not much of a color person but somehow she makes this work.
The side fishtail is my favorite. Here is a tutorial to help you get started. Tip: Make sure you do it in front of a mirror. It’s almost impossible without. Also, the more detailed your braid the better it will look.
