This has always been one of my favorite hairstyles. I posted a picture of this style recently on instagram and realized I’ve never done a tutorial for it. If you already know how to fishtail braid then you can easily learn the french braid version. This only takes a few minutes to do and you don’t need to be a pro to learn it. It’s such a great everyday style so I hope you give it a try! xo, Missy
When I threw this outfit together I was immediately obsessed. I love the contrast between the dark maroon sweater and mini skirt. We actually took these pictures a few months ago but I just never got around to posting them. It’s freezing cold here already and there’s even some snow in some places. I wish so badly Fall would last a few months longer. That and how great would it be if the weekend was two days longer?!
Christmas is coming up and I’m so excited to be sharing one of my favorite gift ideas. This time of year, we’re often so focused on finding the best gift for our loved ones that we can forget to give ourselves some much needed love, too. We have a lot to worry about in winter, so I’d say we could all use a little something to make it better. Naturally, I want to share one of my favorite ways to give a little something special to ourselves, FabFitFun.

Over Labor Day weekend, we went down to St. George and I randomly decided to play around with my hair. I ended up wearing this hairstyle the first day we were there and did it on my sister when we went swimming at Sand Hollow. There were a ton of requests to share a tutorial after I posted a picture on Instagram. I have been so excited to share the tutorial with you!
I looove hairstyles like this because it looks like a puzzle being put together so I hope you love seeing how to recreate it! Let me know in the comments what you think of thi style and whether you give it a try!
Step 1 / Start by picking up a section of hair at the center of the forehead and divide it into three pieces for the braid.
Step 2 / Begin a french braid by crossing the right strand over the middle strand, then cross the left strand over the middle strand.
Step 3 / Now cross the right strand over the middle, pick up a new section and cross it over and into the middle strand.
Step 4 / Then cross the left strand over the middle, pick up a new section and cross it over and into the middle strand.
Step 5 / Now “waterfalling” the side strands so drop down the right strand and pick up a new section right behind it and cross this over the middle strand in place of the dropped piece.
Step 6 / Then drop down the left strand, pick up a new section behind it, and cross it over the middle strand in its place.
Step 7 / Repeat those steps, continuing the braid down the center of the head until the braid reaches the nape of the neck.
Step 8 / Once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, slide a bobby pin over the strands on the right side of the braid so it doesn’t unravel.
Step 9 / Now pick up a section of hair on the right side of the head and divide it into three pieces for the next braid.
Step 10 / Begin a dutch braid by crossing the left strand under the middle strand and then cross the right strand under the middle strand.
Step 11 / Now cross the left strand under the middle and pick up the first waterfall piece and cross it under and into the middle strand.
Step 12 / Then cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under into the middle strand.
Step 13 / Repeat those steps, continuing the dutch braid adding in the waterfall strands to the left side of the braid and sections from along the hairline on the right side until all of the hair on this side is brought into the braid.
Step 14 / Once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, tie off the bottom of the braid with a clear elastic band.
step 15 / Now repeat those same steps and create a second dutch braid with the hair on the left side of the head, adding the waterfall pieces into the right side of the braid and hair from along the hairline to the left side of the braid, until all of the hair is brought into the braid.
Step 16 / Once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, tie off the end of the braid with a clear elastic band.
Step 17 / Then go back over the braids and pull on the edges to make them a little bigger.
Step 18 / Then as a last step, take a small section of hair from each ponytail, wrap it around the elastic band and secure it in place with a bobby pin.
Step 19 / Set everything in place with hairspray and smooth down any loose pieces.
Hello! I feel like it’s been forever since my last post. I’ve decided to try posting my tutorials on Mondays instead of Saturday mornings. I just needed a change of pace but I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I loved getting everything done and posted before the weekend and now I worry about it all weekend, eek! Is there a specific day that you check in for the new tutorial or are you used to seeing them on Saturdays? Let me know! I’m trying to figure out this new schedule (: Thanks for reading! xo, Missy
