Every summer I dread styling my hair with heat products, and this look is the perfect solution to that issue. Any type of braid is a perfect way to style your hair while avoiding applying heat to your hair, while still making it look like you are ready for your day.

This Fashionista sported a lose, effortless fish tail braid while still looking polished. Whether it be a french braid, dutch braid or a fish tail braid, all add an interesting twist to any look. My favorite part of braiding my hair is that it takes at most five minutes to create a really cool, interesting look. They are the perfect thing to do when you want your hair up and out of your face, while still managing to look put together and polished without applying heat.

To recreate this look, first part your hair and the middle and pull all your hair to one side of your head. Start by splitting that section of your hair into two sections. Gradually from each section, take a little piece of hair and cross it over to the opposite section. This piece of hair is now included in that other section. Do this until you run out of hair and elastic your hair off at the end! I love to pull my braid out a bit to create a lose and effortless look. This will also make your braid look bigger and make your hair look thicker!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To complete this look, tie off your braid with these elastics. They are perfect because they are clear, so they won’t be noticeable. Spray this hairspray all over for a perfect soft finish. Add a fun headband to glam up your look for a night out!
