In this self french fishtail braided autumn/fall 2011 hair tutorial I’ll show you how to create two cute and versatile hairstyles without heat or teasing. I start from a big side swept braid and then transform it into an elegant braided updo a-la “faux bob” with a assymetric touch to it. These hairstyles work best on wavy or curly medium long hair, both layered hair and hair of the same length. If your hair is longer than that, you can either put into a messy braid or create a bun using one of the techniques that I’ve shown in my previous videos.
The stylish french fishtail braid keeps your hair away from the face and neck and it’s a great casual hairstyle with an elegant touch that you can wear to school, college, university, work and office. The second updo hairstyle is a little bit more formal and it is suitable for special occasions such as prom, homecoming, graduation party, ball, reception or wedding guests. Properly accessorized, this red carpet hairstyle will also look great as a bridal or bridesmaid updo. Both hairdos are very romantic and they are great for the first date, a night out, a party, dancers (for a dance competition) and all kind of evening events.
