FIX YO MOP: FISHTAIL BRAID

Photo on 2012-03-20 at 16.26 #3


A lot of you asked me to do a tutorial on FISHTAILS. And we all know "If you ask, you shall receive!" Well... we hope right? My mom used to do these braids on us all the time when we were growing up. She still does them on me when I feel like having my hair played with, which is rare because I can't sit still for too long, much less have someone else do my hair. Control freak much? Uh yeah just a little.
So... I thought for this video we can start with the basics. 
Easy. Messy. Fishtail. Teased. No rubber band needed.
Let us know how you do on your fishtail adventure and send us a pic!

Great tutorial - I am looking forward to giving this a go. I guess it will still look sweet with a fringe (or US bangs)?

Did you say "And don't make it perfect because...it's not that cute" Haha...I'm not sure that's what you said lol but it made me laugh!

great tutorial, easy to follow and my first attempt was semi decent! I wanted to share your dreamcatcher diy on my blog so I posted a photo of the finished piece and a link to your blog for all the steps. Hope that's okay, if not let me know & I'll take it down. You can see it here: http://viabellafashion.blogspot.ca/2012/03/dreamcatcher.html

Thanks,
Raman

I think everyday I consider flying from Toronto to Texas just so that I can have someone incredible that understands my personal style give me a haircut. I mean, taking a vacation based on a fantastic haircut isn't that weird....right...?

when is hair considered "long enough" to do this? I keep trying and trying but it never seems long enough to really get it right... ugh!
