YAY! Time to start our "Summer Braid" series on thebeautydepartme.... So excited to kick it off with this one. See the tutorial by clicking on the photo! xo
the beauty department fishtail bun braid "This was done on super long hair. First, I sprayed damp hair with beach spray, roughly blowdried it and made two regular fishtail braids. Then I pulled them apart to soften the look and wrapped them into a large bun in back. I used large hairpins and bobbypins to secure."
the beauty department french plus fishtail. This one looks complicated but it’s not at all. I blew the hair dry with a side part, added some waves with a 1 1/4″ barrel curling iron (this will give the braid more volume and texture), did a regular french braid going from the side with less hair crossing the back and down into a regular braid. Then did a regular fishtail on the heavier side and tucked it in and pinned it to the french braid.
"Doesn’t this look complicated? It’s totally knot. Ha. Get it!? Okaaaay. Prep damp hair with some beach spray. Take two pieces and tie them into a loose knot and add a bobbypin at the middle where you tied the knot. Do the same thing with the next two new pieces (you take new pieces each time, the way you would with a french braid). Then the next two. Then the next two, etc… I would let mine be messy and each knot be slightly off center to make it look a little cooler."
"I did this for Lauren on one of our Kohl’s shoots and it’s my favorite! I prepped the hair by blowing it dry with a volumizing mousse. It’s just two inside-out (somewhat loose/messy) french braids that get pinned into a low fun bun. I pulled out a couple of loose pieces and gave them a little bend with a beveled flat iron."
