Love It or Hate It? Fishtail Braids

The braid trend has been holding on for quite a while, but have you noticed the different spin on braids? This look called the Fishtail Braid has been popping up all over... on the runway, on celebrities and on TV.

Moving away from the mini braids that frame your face, people are going back to old school side braid style. You may have seen Kourtney Kardashian sporting the side braid in the newest episodes of Kim & Kourtney Take New York.

Minka Kelly showed up at her Roommate premiere with a messy side fishtail braid.

Other celebrities who are sporting this messy do: Cheryl Cole, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and more...

We love the look because it is super fresh and looks really complicated.. but rather simple, once you get used to the braiding.

Such an easy look to wear from day/ night- along with those messy hair days.

While looking for tutorials on how to create the fishtail braid... we stumbled upon Imogen from Foxy Locks Extensions' You Tube channel and became hooked...

First here's a pic of her fishtail braid:

Rather than us trying to teach you how to do this.. watch Imogen's You Tube video on

How To: Fishtail Braid

Make sure you check out her other videos.. she has some great hair / make up / beauty tutorials!

Super excited to share this look with all of you and hope that you will give it a try. Let us know what you think - do you love it or hate it?
