Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Fergie, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Rhianna, Dianna Agron, Cheryl Cole, Diane Kruger and Longoria. These are just a tiny portion of the ever-growing number of celebs trying the fishtail braid. Now it’s your turn.
This hair trend is easy to dismiss because, let’s face it, it looks like it takes a lot of time and effort. But good news folks; all it takes is time (and no effort). The style-inspiring Lauren Conrad has created an incredibly easy how-to tutorial on YouTube. I’m lazy with my hair (hello topknot), but even I managed to do this without giving up halfway through.
Scroll down to see my attempt, but meanwhile, you really should watch this and give it a go.
See? Simple. Since I have a lot of hair I used thicker sections than Lauren (I have places to go people. I would’ve been there all day otherwise), but you still get the gist. I rate it a success and will definitely be giving the fishtail braid its first official public appearance this weekend.
