When I posted about this pretty braided hair last week, I was smitten - those messy braids are lovely! And then when I saw the photo above, I decided I'd need to figure out how to do fishtail braids. I had no idea they were so easy!
I've worn some fishtail braided pigtails (lots of "tails" all about, I suppose) since then, and really like them. If they're a pinch messy, they look a bit more grown up than regular pigtails or ponytails.
If you want to give them a go, but don't quite know how, the instructions here are pretty easy to follow.
