Fishtail braids are a perfect easy and beautiful style for the summer! I personally like them left a little loose and messy looking…wild hair is always more fun! Braids are a good idea for summer because you can let your hair air dry and give it a break from all the hot tools you use on it, like flat irons, blow dryers, and curling irons. If you need to, just dry your bangs if you want to leave them down and let the rest dry by itself! They are a great way to do hair fast and get if off your back while it’s hot in the summer time (especially for those of you with long hair). If you don’t have as long of hair, try using clip in extensions. You can buy 100% real hair extensions from Sally’s Beauty Supply and they look gorgeous put in and braided into a fishtail. If you do use extensions, make sure to backcomb your hair so you hide the clips once you get it up! If you have any questions about backcombing, feel free to ask me. I absolutely love big hair!
