2013 was a year full of firsts for me: I ran my longest distance (12 miles), learned how to cook and landed my dream job here at Lucky! Something else that surprisingly ranked high up on my list of personal accomplishments? Mastering a fishtail braid. I know what you’re thinking: After years of seeing all sorts of fancy braids on the runways and red carpet, a fishtail now seems like it’s one of the most basic styles. But no matter how many how-tos I read, my fingers just didn’t want to cooperate. It was finally thanks to Lucky‘s video series where stylist David Diegez showed an easy video tutorial when I figured it out.
Now that I’m hooked on braids, it doesn’t cease to amaze me the different types of braids that have woven their way onto the red carpet as of late: From side braids to milkmaid styles, it seems like the hair inspiration is endless.
