Twisted Tuesday: Nicole Richie’s Glam Fishtail Braid

Scroll down to content


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.
