Festival season is well under way here in the UK, and if V Festival, Reading and Leeds or Bestival are on your agenda for the coming months then we’ve got your hair worries sorted. We’ve teamed up with EIMI to bring you a collection of festival-perfect styles, from last-all-day waves to quirky buns. But first, it’s time for a fishtail braid tutorial.
Fishtail braids are perfect for festivals as they’re effortlessly cool and actually look a bit better once they’re a bit messy. This style, with its mix of loose waves, fishtail plaits and high-volume roots, can withstand hours of partying and even the odd downpour (this is the UK, after all). Armed with just a couple of EIMI’s best styling products, it’s easy to recreate this look.
Step 1: Prep hair using EIMI Perfect Me through the mid-lengths and ends.
Step 2: Taking large sections, wrap hair around a curling wand to create texture. We love the Curve range from ghd for a great selection of wands and tongs!
Step 3: Take a centre parting. Take two large section from the sides of the centre parting to above the ear. Create a variation of fishtail plats on either side, and add more braids through the back of the hair.
Step 4: To create volume through the front, gently pull hair from the front braids for an undone look. Finish with EIMI Shimmer Delight to add shine to this festival-ready style.
