Beach season, baseball season, wedding season—what do these all have in common? They all take place during the summer! And while you don’t exactly have to spend too much time on your hair if you’re planning to relax on the beach or go to a baseball game, you probably still want your hair to look good, right?
Whether you’re a guest at a wedding, hitting up an outdoor yoga class, or meeting your friends for brunch, there are plenty of hairstyles to choose from for various hair lengths and textures. Depending on your personality and preferences, you may consider wearing your hair down with soft waves or slicked back into a chic ballerina bun, for example.
For summer specifically, we’re huge fans of braids. That’s because they’re easy to do and are stylish without looking overdone. Have frizz-prone hair? Work with your texture by creating a messy braid. Don’t have time to wash and dry your hair before you go out? Doing a braid on dirty hair can help create some texture. Now it makes sense as to why we’re totally in love with this style, right?
But instead of rocking a basic braid at your next summer shindig or casual outing, go ahead and try a new style—we’re talking about a braided fishtail ponytail! A fishtail braid is different from a traditional braid in that you only split your hair into two sections—not three—to create it. Fishtail braids look really cool and fancy, even though they’re actually not that difficult to create.
How to create a braided fishtail ponytail: Don’t think you have what it takes to create a braided fishtail ponytail? We’re here to tell you that it’s not as hard as it looks! Watch the video above for step-by-step instructions on doing this hairstyle. Once you’re done, dance the night away as the DJ spins those tunes—and don’t be surprised if you get a few compliments on your awesome hairstyle! Plus, think about how gorgeous you’ll look in all those selfies you take. (Here’s to hoping there’s a photo booth set up, too!)
The L’Oréal Paris styling products you need for a braided fishtail ponytail: When it comes to creating a braided fishtail ponytail, you don’t need a ton of styling products at your disposal. Just make sure you have a gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel to help add grip and hold and tame flyaways, and a hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray to help keep your braided fishtail ponytail in place, on hand.
And there you have it! A super-easy hairstyle that’s perfect to wear just about anywhere. While the braided fishtail ponytail looks complicated, it’s actually pretty simple. We have a feeling this is one hairstyle you’re going to want to incorporate into your everyday hair routine! Just watch the video above for instructions on creating this look and remember to keep a tube of gel and bottle of hairspray nearby for use. Happy braiding!
