HOW-TO: The Side Fishtail by Clariss Rubenstein

Side FIshtail by Clariss Rubenstein Mane Addicts

With school back in session and fashion week kicking off, it’s only appropriate that we give you quick and easy style options for your mane; which is why we love the fishtail braid. This side variation shows off your length, hides a bad hair day, and has tons of movement and texture, looking equally effortless and fashion savvy. Mane Master Clariss Rubenstein walks us through getting the look.
