Comments Off on Half Up Fishtail Hair Tutorial

A little while ago I mentioned that I wanted to start bringing hair tutorials to the blog and I am so excited to be putting that into action today. My hair styling tips and tricks all come from Mauve Hair Design and will consist of step by step images of how to create the look for yourself. Roxann, owner of Mauve Hair Design, styled my hair for this tutorial and teaches you how to get the half up fishtail braid. Continue below to see visual photos and read the how to do…

Half Up Fishtail Hair Tutorial Instructions:

1. CURL HAIR // start with straight, wavy or curly hair. Curly hair is recommended as it allows for more volume around your face as well as within your fishtail.

2. BACKCOMB // Separate the top of your hair while backcombing into three parts. Brush downward towards your head to create volume

3. COMB // lightly comb out through where you have backcombed to take away and straight hairs and to allow your hair to lay evenly. Show in the photos with the teeth end of the comb.

4. SPLIT // Grab the section of your hairline that is just above your hair for the half-up look. Spilt this section into two to start your fishtail.

5. FISHTAIL // Alternating from one section to the other take a small to medium piece of hair and cross over to the other section. Add that section of hair together and repeat. The smaller the amount of hair that you cross over the more detailed your fishtail will look at the end.

6. REPEAT // Continue going back and forth with small to medium pieces of hair. Always pull the pieces from the outer side of your section.

8. END FISHTAIL // When you finish your fishtail do not tie yet, hole the end with one hand.

9. MASSAGE // With one hand holding the end of the braid use the other to massage braid to help loosen the braid to desired look. This will give the visual appearance of a thicker braid.

10. PULL // Take small pieces from within the braid and pull them away from your head to also allow for a thicker messier look.

11. FINISH // Use a small rubber elastic, comes in clear or hair colour colours to finish your fishtail. You can often find these elastics at a dollar store.

12. ROCK IT

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
