Half Up Dutch Fishtail and Twist Braid

Today’s tutorial is this pretty half up hairstyle inspired by @svglamour on instagram. I love looking through pictures of hairstyles and always feel so inspired by the different hairstylists I follow on instagram and pinterest. It’s so amazing to see everyone’s unique styles and perspectives on hair. It has always been so fun for me to share my passion for hair and I love seeing it from so many other people as well.

On another note, Halloween is coming up soon and I’m planning a few tutorials. Let me know in the comments below if there’s a specific Halloween tutorial you’d love to see! Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
