Blake Lively Inspired Fishtail Braid Celebrity Hairstyles

How to Style:

1. A fishtail braid is created with two strands of hair instead of three.

2. Keep wrapping small pieces of outside hair towards the center of the two strands to create that wrap around, bone-like look. Practicing on someone else first helps.

Recommended Products:

Before you braid your hair, spray some Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Hair Spray throughout. Brush through with a paddle brush to break it up and then braid. Adding just a little bit of flexible hold spray will help keep the braid a little neater and less likely to frizz. Don’t use a strong hold hairspray or your hair will be too sticky to work with.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

The fun thing about braids is that anyone can wear them. No matter what your face shape or hair type, you just need to make sure your hair is long enough to braid. Girls with short hair will have to rock a different style.

Tips:

Wear this braid down the center or towards the side. It even looks cute if you wear it slightly messy.

The Jessica Simpson

Long blonde locks that are super healthy, shiny and wavy will turn you into a celebrity in no time. This Jessica Simpson-inspired style has long wavy tendrils with medium to long layers cut throughout for shape and body.

3. Drop down the top and finish curling. Make sure you curl the front pieces away from the face for that swept back effect.

4. Follow up with your favorite hairspray or shine spray.
