I Did It. I Did It!

I finally was able to do a fish tail braid.  I've tried SO many times and going straight back was making my arms SO, SO tired, not to mention my arms are a wingspan of 5'9" and I still can't reach the bottom of the braid.

Then I saw a tutorial by love Maegan's blog that I stumbled across via Pinterest the other day (you can follow me here) and got motivated to give it another shot. She suggested doing a side fish tail braid which actually worked out better than I thought it would. I thought because I have layers and my hair is right above my ninnies [you know what those are don't you... ;)] too much hair would fall out.  But to my surprise if I started with it tight enough like Maegan suggested, and just pin up any fallen pieces after I was done, it would work out perfectly!

Given it took me about 10 minutes this morning, I feel like I could speed up the process now that I have the method figured out.  This is one of my favorite hairstyles this Summer, great for when you haven't' washed your hair in two days like me! It actually makes the braiding easier than doing it with clean hair, trust me!

I know these aren't the greatest pictures but I wanted to show off my skillz!

Tried using the "Diffuse Glow" in PS CS5
