I have done a previous post showcasing a fun spring hairstyle of soft waves and short hair. Today I partner up again with Hair Cuttery to try out a fun hair trend for the summer season. Last time I focused on embracing short hair and this time around I show you a style for long hair featuring a side fishtail braid. To achieve this look I used clipin wavy hair extensions from my brand, Bella Kurls, to go from shoulder hair length to long locks in a matter of minutes!
At the last minute I had to reschedule my appointment from the Kendall location because I had to drive up north to get my camera. Luckily since there is a Hair Cuttery in every neighborhood I was able to book my appointment nearby instead of going back down south. Talk about convenience! Started off with a shampoo and condition and then rinsed off with cold water. Which wasn't the most comfortable process, but honestly I've heard its the best for curly hair. Rinsing off with cold water is said to seal your cuticles to make the hair appear shinier.
Next the Hair Cuttery Stylist, Yoyi, blow dried my hair straight since the Bella Kurls wavy texture does not match my natural curl. Normally I would then use a curling iron to blend the hair together but instead opted for a side fishtail braid to keep my hair in place and out of my face during these hot summer days. I showed the stylist a picture of the braid I wanted to try out and she did such a beautiful job recreating the look. The intricate-looking 'do might look intimidating but she honestly finished the braid in 15 minutes or less. She then sprayed down the flyaways and used a curling iron to style the short hair that just weren't long enough for the braid.
