Side French Fishtail with Curls

Hello! This style is perks for those of you knowing how to braid fishtail or a regular French braid. I did French fishtail as side braid but can also go ahead with French braid if you’re more comfortable with it. It totally varies from the person to person. To make the hairstyle look sexier and hotter I have done the curls. To be honest the curls are the previous day’s hair which was a total TIME SAVER otherwise it takes so long to curl my hair which is quite long. That’s the only reason why I don’t ofenly curl my hair, it’s a  hustle. I wore this hairstyle with the pleated skirt and top with lace choker. I don’t think step by step instruction is necessary for this hairstyle. For the curls I have used 25mm curling wand. You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}. Time Taken: 3-4 mins Skill Level:  Medium Hair Length: Medium to long hair
