cos you look so fine and I really wanna make you mine

Now, I’m not normally one for “doing” my hair. I’m far too lazy to be honest with you. I just let it dry naturally, scrunch in some Andrew Collinge Salon Shine Gloss (literally my god-send and for years the best product I’ve found!) and I’m good to go! But I’ve been noticing the appearance of “fish-tail” braids all over magazines and the catwalk and, when I found a “how-to” in my Glamour Magazine this month that looked surprisingly easy, I thought I’d give it a go!

Five Simple Steps

1. Tie your hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, slightly to the side. 
2. Separate the hair into two sections. 
3.Take a thin strand of hair from the far side of one of the sections and cross it over to the other side.
4. Repeat, alternating, until the end.
5. Tie with a transparent hair tie at the end, and undo the tie at the top of the ponytail. 

Call me stupid, but for some reason I thought it was gonna be a lot more complicated!! It’s really not much more hassle than a normal plait and I was really pleased with the result! I’m still a scruffy girl at heart so I mussed up the plait a bit, let lose a few strands of hair and added a headscarf to make it a bit more “me”, but I like it! Definitely adding it to my very sparse hair repertoire.

Life is a bit too dull right now to fill up much of a blog post, so sorry if this one’s been a bit of a let down. Not much is going on; I’m working hard for my Mum in my mission to earn enough to buy that Topshop leopard-print coat, have seen some friends and that’s about it in my “not-too-much-talking” world right now, haha. Oh well, I’m going back to Uni in just over a week so life will soon start shining again 🙂

Anyways, I’m off for now – I’m exhausted! I promise you a better post tomorrow 😉

    I love fish braids. Every time I wear one people are amazed at my ‘talent’ and want me to teach them how to do it. It makes me laugh cos its so simple. You have lovely hair by the way.
