Hairstyle Trend How-To, Photos: Goodbye Fishtail, And Hello Lobster Tail Braid -- No Braiding Required, Only Twisting!

How To Create The Braided Side Bun

There is no denying that the fishtail braid had a great run. But Mario Russo, Owner and Lead Stylist of Salon Mario Russo in Boston, believes it’s time for a new tail to have their chance in the spotlight. Cue the Lobster Tail. This messy and textured twist is easy to create and doesn’t even requiring braiding skills… just twisting! Depending on the occasion, the Lobster Tail can be as deconstructed or as neat as you like. Read on to find out Mario’s tips on how to create the Lobster Tail for your Labor Day weekend beach excursions or at-home BBQs.

Step 1. Start with day-old hair to achieve the messy and textured look of this braid. Use a texturizing spray like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray on the roots to eliminate any natural oils that can flatten hair.

Step 2. Gather hair to one side, while leaving a few front pieces of hair out on the opposite side. Curl these pieces with a 1-inch barrel to add more shape around the face.

Step 3. Separate hair in half, a front and back section, and make 3 small sections out of the back section. Twist each one individually before joining all 3 to make one twist. Secure with a clip so you can work freely on the front section. Don’t worry if it untwists a little bit, you can re-twist later.

Step 4. Take the front section, split into 2 small twisted sections and then combine to make one twist. Join the front and back twists; make one complete twist and then secure with 5-6 bobby pins by the ear. This will hold together the beginning of the twist.

Step 5. Spray texturizing spray again on hair below the bobby pins to create fullness and then make 2 twists with this remaining hair and combine the 2 twists into one, twisting all the way down. Don’t twist too hard; let it be a little loose to give it more thickness and texture.

Step 6. Before securing with a hair tie, put bobby pins UP throughout the twist, almost like a skeleton for the twist, and then secure with a hair tie. The pins will hold the twist in place. Finish off with a light hairspray, such as Oribe Superfine Strong Hair Spray.

So, did you hear about the one where Rihanna walks into a hair salon… We haven’t either. But it’s exactly what happened this week when Rihanna (also known as AuntyOhNaNa) and her niece spent a fun-filled day getting her little ears pierced at Cozy’s Cuts For Kids Salon in NYC. If that wasn’t adorable enough, the kid-friendly hair salon is now launching the first-ever line of haircare products called SoCozy with everything from 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body washes to soft-hold styling gels and creams for unruly baby hair!

Hairstyle B/A Photos: How To Get/Fake The Braided Crown Look With The Christie Brinkley Hair2Wear Collection: Review

I’m pretty much beguiled with any form of beauty shortcuts, whether it be a fifteen minute facial or five-sec nail appliques. So, naturally, anything that will spare me from having a bad hair day fast really gets me excited.

Christie Brinkley Hair2Wear – Lace Front Wigs, Weaves, Ponytail Extensions, Clip-On Bangs

I usually love to snooze until the last minute. So, on most days, it’s throw-my-hair-up-with-a-large-clip and go for me. But there are times when I got a bad case of #hairenvy, and wish I can rock the fishtail, braided crowns and triple french braids found EVERYWHERE (thanks Pinterest!) on the internet. Instead of cursing out the beauty gods and vowing never to attempt to fancy-up my hair (just kidding!) ever again, the Christie Brinkley Hair2Wear Collection steps in as my beauty fairy godmother, allowing me to sport gorgeous braids without the wasted time (let alone stress).

Now, I’ve had my fair-share of clip-on hair pieces, as I’m still trying to forget the time I wore Paris Hilton’s line of headband extensions. Yes, I know. Mega cringe indeed! But let me stress this, the Hair2Wear line carefully avoids that unwanted cheapness factor by blending in naturally with your hair, while bringing a small pop of elegance. Although there are many on-trend looks to try, I got to test out the Double Braided Headband, which gives your hair that prim and polished look in just seconds.

Before

On any given day, my hair has a natural wave to it. So of course when I wake up, my hair has that effortless kink, but at the same time appears somewhat dull. To give it some sass and character, this elastic headband (available in 11 shades) gives you that prepster look without the added bobby pins. Just simply slide the band onto your head, style and go! Yep, it’s really that easy.

At the moment, I’m obsessed with mastering that hippie chic vibe, so for that festival-inspired finish, slide the band over your forehead and work that confidence girlfriend!

After

If you prefer a more classic headband style though, play up your center part by adding this headband to your hair for some necessary girly chicness that’s perfect for that first-day back to school. Or, to keep your hair from fall falling in your face, wear it to your next workout session for extra style and comfort. Despite the endless ways you can wear it, the budget-friendly price (just $10!) is really the best part. That way you can save some dough, or maybe get one or two more of these must-have pieces!
