Twisted Tuesday: Nicole Richie’s Glam Fishtail Braid


If you think braided hairstyles should be reserved for casual days, you might want to reconsider. Nicole Richie stepped out at the LACMA Art + Film Gala wearing a stunning Dolce & Gabbana gown paired with a bun and fishtail combo. The result was simply gorgeous. Here’s how I’d go about recreating the glam, braided hairstyle:

Step 1: Create a slick high ponytail. If your hair is on the shorter or thinner side, try adding a ponytail piece like Hairdo 18″ Simply Straight Pony Wrap, $49. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins, if necessary.

Step 2: Split your ponytail in half. Wrap one of the halves into a bun around the other hanging half. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 3: Tightly fishtail braid (here’s the scoop on how to fishtail braid) the hanging section and secure with a tiny, clear elastic.

Step 4: Clean up any flyaways with hairspray spritzed on an old toothbrush.
