Hairstyles For Long Hair
Soft Romantic Curls
And A Messy Fishtail Braid

This side swept hairstyle features a messy, romantic look that is so popular right now.  This hair style is versatile and can be worn casual for every day or school.  But is also elegant enough for a special occasion.  This would be a lovely hairstyle for a beach wedding!

The fishtail braid (or fishbone/herringbone braid) is one of our favorite braids of all time.  So, we enjoyed incorporating a miniature version into this hairstyle.  This "mini" fish braid is actually acting as a barrette or hair tie, holding the curls over to one side. ;)

We created these cascading curls using a curling wand or "You Curl" clip-less curling iron by CONAIR.  I'm liking the natural soft looking curls or waves this type of curling iron creates (compared to the regular spiral ringlets we are used to making with our regular clamped curling iron.)  Any type of curl including no heat curls would be darling and work just great with this style. We have had some requests for hairstyles that will work for naturally curly hair, so if you are lucky enough to have natural curl, you can skip the curling and go straight for the fishtailing!

This hairstyle really isn't anything complicated or unique.  Sometimes simple and classic can be so beautiful!

BTW: We are hosting a "Youtube only" giveaway right now for a "You Curl" curling iron, along with several hair accessories (inclucing a topsy tail, a bun maker, and some Bendini clips.)  If you would like to enter the contest, click over to our Youtube giveaway video for details.

FTC: Conair and Scunci sent us the curling iron and rose clips shown in this video to try.  No other compensation was exchanged.  The opinions expressed are my own and results may vary.
