In Hairstyles We Trust: The Fishtail Braid

The Fishtail braid is the hair staple of the spring and summer season. It’s one of the few hairstyles that doesn’t have to be perfect (and it actually looks better if it is messy). But instead of the typical under-the-sea braid, I suggest amping up your look with some color, texture and lots of volume. From pastel pink to side-ponies, I’ve rounded up my favorite looks from Pinterest. Don’t know how to do one? Don’t worry. Lauren Conrad‘s got you covered.
