1. The Fish Tail Braid

how to conquer the fishtail braid

Start off by bringing your hair into a ponytail, it makes things much easier. You can have your braid any which way you like, whether strewn across your head like a crown, falling down the back, or on the side. But today’s tutorial will teach you how to make a side fish tail. Split your hair down the middle to reveal two sections. Unlike the classic braid, you’ll only need to sections to achieve the look. Time to unveil the trick to this elaborate braid:  separate a small section of your hair from the outer edge close to your elastic band, crossing it over to the opposite side. Overlap just like you would if you were doing a regular braid. Reaffirm your grip on your hair to tighten the plait, still holding both sections. Repeat with a small section from the other side. Keep at it until you’ve covered the length of the braid you want, and seal with an elastic band.

The beautiful Mila is a veteran at the messy beach waves front. To bag her style, begin spraying texturizer onto dry hair. Next, take medium to thick sections of your hair and wrap them around a large barrel curling iron. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat the process until you’re happy with your look. You can also just braid your hair the night before and seal it in with hair spray. Undo the braids the next day to unveil unrivaled beach waves and a curl that lasts all day!

Tease the top of your head, applying volumizer or texturizer as you go to give it body. Set your crown in place with some strategically placed bobby pins. Start a french braid from the crown and take it down to the side. There you have it! To add that “I just rolled out of bed looking flawless and now i’m ready to walk the red carpet” touch, tug at your braid until it’s nice and messy. Wisps are welcome, and the messy look works for this braid.

5. The High Pony Tail



Bring your best face forward with this sleek look! Do your pony tail higher than you usually do, and tie with an elastic. You can either use a super cute elastic band, or do it like the pros do by wrapping a section of hair around the elastic and tucking it in.
