Wait & Braid | Fishtail Halo Braid

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a good day! Finally, the weather here seems to getting warmer. I love Summer and with the sun being out, nothing is more annoying than your hair getting in the way. Introducing the most perfect Spring/Summer Hairstyle, the Fishtail Halo braid. This is such a stunning hairstyle. I've always loved fishtail braids because I think they look so unique and angel-like, especially when the fishtail carries on the whole way around the head to create a halo hairstyle! I won't try explaining this to you because I'm sure I'll make it sound so complicated. I got this style of the amazing Missy Sue. She's my favourite youtube hairstylist and her tutorial video on this braid (x) made achieving this hairstyle so easy!

If you wanted to make the braid look more 'fishtail' instead of a regular braid, just add in thinner strands of hair. This style is one of the more time consuming ones but it's definately worth it. It stays in all day too!

What do you think of this braid?

  10. You did a superb job. I highly doubt I could achieve this same fishtail halo without trying it 70 times. :]
