Half Up Dutch Fishtail Braid

It’s a new year and I’m not ready for the holidays to be over yet. I’ve had such a blast the last few weeks spending time with family and taking time off from this blog. It’s been so great to disconnect and spend time in the real world. Sometimes it’s easy to let all those little apps on our phones take over all of our free time. I’ve been trying to focus on friends and family and it’s made everyday so much more exciting.

Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I recently shared on instagram. It’s a quick way to add a little something extra special to your everyday curls. I love wearing my hair down but always want my hair out of my face. Dutch fishtail braids add an extra pop so I hope you give this braid a try.
