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 😉
