My go to easy simple braids | Fishtail braid & Oversized side pancake braid

Hello lovely people!

Todays post is a hair related one for a change. Recently I've been getting bored of doing the same hairstyles- down and curly or up in a top knot. They really aren't doing it for me at present so I've ventured into braid territory...

The fishtail braid

I love this braid, it's so simple and easy to do yet looks really effective and I've been getting lots of compliments on it and questions on how to do it. To be honest it looks more complicated than it really is but once you know how it's really simple! I like taking random sized sections of hair to give it more of a messy look as I'm not one for uniform perfect hair!

The Oversized side plait

I don't know what else to call this really. All I know is it's different and a bit unusual to your average braid which is why I love it. It's perhaps not as wearable as the fishtail braid but it certainly makes a statement and to me it gives off a bohemian vibe. I wore this braid a lot whilst at Secret Garden Party over the summer and added hair rings into it and/or a floral crown (see blog post) which really set off the festival theme. Again this is a really simple braid to do but looks really effective and great for anyone who dares to pull it off!

So there we have it, my two current favourite braids to do. I hope you like them! If you decide to recreate them yourself, tweet me @laydeykatabella or leave a comment to your blog post below :-). Check out the Youtube video below to see how I did them:

Have a great weekend!
