Happy Friday, everyone! So, I (Emma here!) need to try a new hairstyle every few months or so to mix things up. Over the last few months, I’ve been gaga for top knots, hair buns, DIY Hair Bows – even curly top knot turned side chignons (my favorite). Today, I’m here to talk about my latest hair obsession: the fishtail braid. This sweet, boho-inspired hairstyle has been gaining popularity and I see it sticking as a popular hairstyle in 2013. Whether you’re a bride-to-be looking for a perfect wedding day hairstyle or you’re like me and hoping to score a new favorite DIY ‘do, you’ll love today’s feature. Instead of keeping my own DIY fishtail braid research to myself (which is no fun for anyone), I’m sharing my favorite DIY fishtail braid finds with you today. Check out an amazing how to fishtail braid video, read a few tips, and check out Real Wedding examples below. This hairstyle is perfect for weddings, special occasions, nights out on the town, and date night! I know I’ll be giving it a try this weekend myself. So… if you have questions, share ’em in the comments area at the bottom of the most and we’ll try to muddle through together. :) (Oh, and P.S… short-haired lovelies will find some DIY fishtail braids to try, too! This style certainly isn’t for long-haired locks alone.) Enjoy!
