Nicole Richie recently rocked headlines with a super cute braided look at the Ella Moss 10 Year Anniversary Celebration. It was the perfect combination of young and playful, and even better still, it is definitely poof-proof – and if you’re wondering how to do it – I’m here to show you!
This braid is super easy to do – it’s a combination of two french braids brought together into one fishtail braid.
Part your hair. Nicole has hers parted pretty near to dead center, but I encourage a side part if that’s what you like.
Separate your hair down your part evenly on both sides. If you chose a side part, angle the separation down the back of your head so you have semi-even braids on each side.
French braid down each side of your head. To shake things up, experiment with where the braids start. Starting the braids lower down will allow for a more laid back look.
At the base of your skull, bring all you hair together and to the side. Fishtail braid down to the ends. Secure, and you’re done!
For some reason, I have always found trends regarding where women part their hair very interesting. It’s subtle, but it is a detail that can really make a difference in how a hair style looks. In my opinion, face shape and hair type have everything to do with whether or not a part is fab or a flop, and right now we are luckily in a decade where almost all hair parts are acceptable and stylish.
Recently, however, I have noticed the center part really coming back in full force, and depending on the hairstyle that goes hand in hand with the center part, it can appear to hail from the 70s, 80s, or even 90s trends with a modern look.
