How to do fishtail braids

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Seems that braids are timeless! I remember sporting them all the time as a little girl and last night I gasped when I saw this cool fishtail braid tutorial! The directions are quite straight forward and with a little practice I hope I can get the hang of it. (I'm terrible with my hair). I can totally picture wearing those perfectly messy braids, red lipstick and a floral sun dress:). Sweets, would you go for this look? What's your favourite type of braids? (For me it's between fishtail braids and crown braids). xox

Ready..steady..go!

P.S: The rainbow braid tutorial is fantastic as well! Check it out.
P.P.S: Stay tuned for GIVEAWAY Thursday...(something perfect for Mother's Day!)
