The Fishtail Twist Updo Tutorial

01

 Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday the 11th?
I didn’t, but I love seeing the best, and worst, looks of the night. Naturally, I love seeing what is happening with the hair, but also the dresses. Some of the choices leave me wondering how on earth ____ (fill in the blank celebrity) left their room wearing that and feeling good.
In general, I felt like the hair was soft, simple, and flattering. There wasn’t too much that was overdone or too severe, so I was quite surprised to see a lot of really soft, wearable styles!

It’s been a little while since I filmed a hair tutorial, but I was inspired by the award show, and the many that are to come, to pull together a little 3 step updo. I mention in the video that you can swap out the fishtail braid for a regular braid, but in case you want to learn how to fishtail, click here. Do not be intimidated by the final photos of this updo. It’s broken into three separate parts and I’m confident that even a newbie could recreate this look. The key, and this is very important, is to start with a decent amount of texture in your hair. It’s impossible to add texture after you are done, but you’ll have a much easier time building the style if you start with the right hair!

I worked with a few new products on this tutorial as well! Big Sexy Hair Full Bloom needs to be used on wet hair, then blow dry to activate the formula. Then I built volume and texture with Big Sexy Hair Get Layered Flash Dry Thickening Hairspray – the quickest drying hairspray in the market, and finished with a healthy dose of Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play. I’ve tried numerous products by Sexy Hair over the years, and I was excited to get my hands on these products and put them to the true test of an updo!

    I can’t enter the giveaway because I live in Canada but I still wanted to pop in and say that this is a GORGEOUS updo and I can’t wait to try it!

  2. Stacey says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft curls “old Hollywood” look. It screams feminine!

  3. Jen says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a classic put together look. I am not a big fan of looks that are too out there for awards shows.

  4. Rebecca says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the pretty and feminine looks but want to still recognize the person. Nothing too out of the norm.

  5. Kylie Frieze says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love it when natural beauty is just enhanced with makeup and soft hairstyles. Heavy makeup and crazy hair makes me feel like they are still in character mode and not really themselves!

  6. beth says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft feminine looks with a bit of whimsy.

  7. Nicole F. says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this! Perfect for the workday!

  8. Katie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like a soft feminine classy look that might include a simple updo or soft curls.

  9. Tessa says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    You make it look so easy!! I need to practice, but I will be trying this one! I love that it’s a different look. I love casually styled hair.

  10. Hollind says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I am a sucker for up-dos. I especially love soft ones.

  11. Heidi G. says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like the softer look – with curls and wisps falling out gracefully! I am excited to try this one though because I just love the addition of a small braid with an updo – it’s like something unexpected and adds a little detail – nice flair!

  12. Gretchen says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Oh, I love this! So elated to see a hair tutorial from you again.

  13. Denise Hill says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I prefer the softer more natural look. I’m not fond of the severe, over the top looks. I like people to look like themselves!

  14. Gretchen says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Oh, this is lovely! So elated to see a hair tutorial from you again.

  15. Kim G says
    Posted January 19, 2015

  16. Caitlyn says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    LOVE this. Maybe I will try it for a friend’s wedding in the spring!

    I love the trend of the softer up-dos. When I was in high school, everyone had the complicated prom hair and that feels so outdated now!

  17. Sarah says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the soft feminine look with curls

  18. Caroline McKee says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft curls of a classic old hollywood look! I think it always looks beautiful and just done enough on the red carpet! I seem to always love Reese Witherspoon and Amy Adam’s hair at award shows!

  19. Dawn says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like soft and feminine hairsyles or even long flowy curls.

  20. Regina B says

    The old Hollywood look is my favorite with all the glam and bling.

  24. Sara Howland says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Hi Kate,
    I love the old Hollywood glam look! With glamorous waves and maybe a broach added to the hair for old world charm and glamour! Especially when that hair is worn with the perfect shade of red lipstick.

    Love,
    Sara

  25. Clair Jenkins says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a soft up-do. I don’t like it too sleek and smooth. Some texture and body makes it so pretty!

  26. Claire Williams says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a classic look that’s timeless. Love your blog! 🙂 Claire Williams

  27. Tristia Winters says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like a more softer look. Soft curls or a soft upto. Very natural

  28. lilly says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    my hair is longer now to try this, will be very helpful during summer months

  29. Patti says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Definitely prefer the softer, more feminine look

  30. Jessie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like soft and feminine up-dos.

  31. Holly says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft, feminine styles. I have to work hard to get enough texture in my hair, but I think I’ll give this one a try–thanks!

  32. Posted January 19, 2015

    I’m all for the feminine classy look. I want something soft – not those hard over done looks they come up with 🙂

  33. Cassidy says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft curls and when they pull their hair to the side. But it always depends on the dress, neckline and jewelry.

  34. Kaitlin says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I prefer soft wavy hairstyles for the red carpet! This is gorgeous!

  35. Teri says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like softer, elegant styles. Something classic, but with a touch of something new added to it.

  36. Kristen B. says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really love feminine and soft looks!

  37. Posted January 19, 2015

    Great tutorial! Love this hairstyle! So perfect 🙂

    French twist is my favorite. Thanks for another great tutorial.

  39. Susan W says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the soft curl updo looks!!

  40. Jennah says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft updo’s…something that looks rather “messy” and natural is my style. Unfortunately I have very straight, rather lifeless, hair that takes a lot of product to get it to look naturally messy. I also love braids so I am excited to try this updo!

  41. Holly says
    Posted January 19, 2015
  42. Jessica says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the look you created here! Almost reminded me of my wedding hair, but without the braid! i love those soft looks, with a ton of body!

  43. Amanda Thompson says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft and feminine hair styles! This is a great look, can’t wait to try it. Thanks so much

  44. Christina Sitton says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft feminine look. Ladylike is always a hit in my book.

  45. Cynthia says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft hair updos with wavy texturr! They make such a classy and beautiful look that I love to try and recreate (though it never seems to stay that way on me with such straight hair!)

  46. Rachel H says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the softer old classic Hollywood looks. Long loose waves or soft updo. Very classy and timeless. I think Amy Adams and Blake Lively nail the old Hollywood look the best.

  47. Stephanie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the old Hollywood hair and glam!

  48. Posted January 19, 2015

    I love old Hollywood looks – classy and intentionally styled, but not overly fussy.

  49. Christina says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like a softer updo and a smokey eye! Love this tutorial – can’t wait to try it out for formal night on a cruise I’m going on next month!!

  50. Shannon says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the soft, natural look but also loved Jennifer Lopez’s entire look!

  51. Sylvia Baker says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    i love the Realistic beauty! It’s got to be doable and natural!

  52. Nicole says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Thanks for the tutorial! I don’t do updos very often because I am easy intimidated when it comes to doing my hair. I think I could tackle this for a special occasion or date night with my husband!

  53. Buffy says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Soft curls up or down and classic hairstyles.

  54. Kerrie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft curls. Emily Blunt’s style from the Critics Choice Awards is pretty much my dream style.

  55. Alyssa H. says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I definitely like the softer, lived-in, natural look. Even for the red carpet. 🙂

  56. Mac B says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Keep it simple- can’t go wrong with something simple and classy.

  57. Sam M says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft and feminine ones! I love Big Sexy’s texturizing and volumizing products!

  58. Jackie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the slassic clean looks, nothing too over the top

  59. Cheryl says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a soft, feminine updo…something like what you did in this video. Glam. It would be flattering on so many women. Can’t wait to try it!

  60. Caty says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft wavy look, or a sleek updo.

  61. Christina says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft waves.

  62. Vemiska says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Looks aaamazing 🙂 very pretty and yes I want to recreate this someday…maybe for a night out 😉
    thanks for the inspiration…I have never seen a big fishtail brait in a updo 🙂
    lovely

  63. Hannah says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft and feminine hair. There’s just something about it that it classy and elegant. It’s perfect for an award show.

  64. Laura says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the old Hollywood glam style!

  65. joanne kang says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Looks lovely! Will try the updo when my hair grows out.

  66. Danielle says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft feminine hairstyles!

  67. Sara says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    it depends on the dress for me. some need that soft natural look but there are others where i think a severe updo is the way to go.

  68. Lynette McReynolds says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a look that is pretty. I don’t care for the harsh or overly seductive looks. Especially when there is too much skin. You can definitely be sexy w/o showing it all.

  69. amanda says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this look! It screams red carpet, but in a soft way, which is my favorite type of red carpet look! Natural with a little glam.

  70. Ashleigh says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I thought that Jennifer Lopez was beautiful with her smoky eye; it was not too harsh and was perfect with her soft curls.

  71. Lindsay says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a soft, feminine updo with lots of volume! (And hold, lots of hold, no one likes their hair falling down midway through an event)

  72. Colleen Mercer says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really enjoy seeing the celebrities style their hair in a dramatic way and love when the hair style matches their dress! So often you might see a hair-do that just doesn’t quite go with the look they were trying to pull off. I thought Kate Hudson looked incredible . Her hair was simple, but classy and her dress was very dramatic and elegant!!

  73. Becky Warner says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the classic “old Hollywood” looks. They never go out of style.

  74. Rebecca says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Gorgeous! I’m still trying to master your simplest designs so I think this one may be over my head ;).

  75. Michelle says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    i love when the have an amazing dress with simple makeup!

  76. Amy Wyatt says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft, romantic updo’s! And I’m excited to try this one!!

  77. Kellie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the overly glam fancy updo kind of look! It’s the red carpet after all!

  78. Jenna says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love any kind of style with soft curls. It’s romantic and elegant!

  79. Amanda says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the classically glamorous, old Hollywood feel for the red carpet!

  80. Lacey Wilson says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the soft updos. It’s interesting to see all the different ways a braid is being used.

  81. Amanda says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like a softer look, with curls.

  82. Samantha S says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the glanced up looks! I would love opportunities to get all glamorous, though they might get tired of it since they go to a lot of events.

  83. Shena says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love an edgy look but some soft curls are always great.

  84. Jenn says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this updo and LOVE Big Sexy hair products!

  85. Mindy says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft and feminine look, maybe even a little messy 🙂

  86. Melinda says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the classic look – timeliness, sleek and simple!

  87. Beka says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the simple dress….glam out hair and jewels! Would love to see in person!

  88. Julie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    The softer looks are by far my favorite!! Thanks for another hair tutorial. I just love when you post new ones:)

  89. Jacinda Beug says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the updo! I like a classic look to the hairstyles with a smoky eye! Thanks for the video. I am been trying to grow out my hair and have been playing with different styles. I have struggled to learn the fishtail braid through Youtube and other sites. It was your video on how to do it, that I finally understood and got it! Thanks!

  90. Jennifer Buchanan says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Beautiful! I love classic looks!

  91. Shannon says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like a classic look – nothing too harsh.

  92. Leslie Fuller says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the loose updos with soft curls and simple dresses

  93. Kate S. says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I’m an updo every day kind of girl, so for a really glamorous evening out, I would definitely wear my hair in a style that is more refined and elaborate. The hairstyle you’re showing off here is adorable, but something I would probably wear any day of the week.

  94. Kelsey says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like a little bit of both-glamorous and soft!

  95. Karen says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft/freminine more relaxed updo’s! I will definitely have to try out your updo, it’s absolutely gorgeous!

  96. Andrea says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    My favorite up-do at an awards show was Julia Roberts in 2001 when she won the Oscar. It was sculpted and huge and gorgeous!

  97. V says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    The photo makes it look so complicated but your video makes it seem so much easier.

    I love the darker color of your hair lately!

    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this tutorial, I like more classic/fancy looks!

  99. Sarah Weber says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    soft updos are my favorite!

  100. Stephanie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Gorgeous updo!!

  101. Rebecca says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    As much as I like a slick updo, as far as a red carpet event I would think a soft, lived in style would be so much more practical. It can go with so many different dress styles and all you’d need was a few bobby pins in your purse to fix any fly aways. I’ll definitely be trying this for my next choir concert!

  102. Blaine says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft curls look, like old Hollywood-glam.

  103. Jan Tilton says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love the jewelry! I’m a bling gal.

  104. Nell Hildebrand says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Going to try this look for an upcoming event! Your hair looks gorgeous Kate!

    Curled and feminine, more lived in looks with a bit of detail, like a twist or a small hair accessory. Always lots of volume!

  105. Chris says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like a more casual look. An updo is great, but I don’t like when it completely changes the look of the person. Be yourself – even at the red carpet events 🙂

  106. Elise says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    This looks beautiful and I LOVE Big Sexy hair products- it helps out us fine-haired ladies look like we have lots of hair 🙂

  107. Amy says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love Big Sexy Hair! Would love to try some of their texture products.

  108. Lena Burns says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love to see the different ways braids are worn on the red carpet. There’s always some new way to wear a braid and they look really cool and elegant, like yours!

  109. Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like a little bit of both-glamorous and soft!
    Such a cool post! Love this post!
    Love from http://www.trangscorner.com – a lifestyle, cooking, fashion blog

  110. Amy Duke says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the glamorous styles such as a beautiful up-do or a wavy, old Hollywood type look. Reese Witherspoon seems to always pull off that perfect old Hollywood style. Thanks for the giveaway, Kate! 🙂

  111. Linda says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like the fancy up-dos on the red carpet.

  112. Brianna says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I really like the soft romantic hair. Side swept, braids, texture. This look fits all three!

  113. Brittney says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a more natural look for the red carpet – nothing too overly done up and drastic. Simple natural looking makeup with a bronzed glow and a bold lip with some soft old Hollywood curls looks glamorous on just about anybody!

  114. Stephanie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this! So soft and feminine.

  115. Carmen says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the Old Hollywood soft curl look!

  116. Sienna says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I always love to see the updo’s!

  117. Cody says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I’m a fan of a soft curls nothing to structured. The undo updo’s are always a nice look just like this hair tutorial. It’s something that looks high glam Hollywood but without the “hair team” behind it.

  118. SHERRY says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    You know the look Blake Lively and Reese Witherspoon have been wearing. Classic, feminine with a wave or loose curl.

  119. Lindsay says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Hands down the best red carpet look ever is glowing skin. Everything looks great with a flawless, dewy complexion.

  120. Emilee says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    So pretty! I love soft, interesting updos like this with lots of texture. Thank you for this tutorial! Now I just have to find an excuse for a date night with the husband so I can wear it. (;

  121. Evie says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like the soft, textured up dos:)

  122. Sarah says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love the soft, simple, up dos. Nothing too drastic or harsh.

  123. Posted January 19, 2015

    My favorite look is a soft look. Flowy dresses with a soft color and a beautiful simple updo or waves.

  124. Cathryn says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love soft, wearable updos like this! My hair has been growing out from neglect rather than choice, and styles like these make me consider letting it get long again. 🙂

  125. Jodi says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love classic, feminine looks that have some component that catches light whether it be jewelry or fabric. Nothing over-the-top or too revealing. My favorite hairstyles for the red carpet depend on the dress style, but I’ve always preferred long hair over short.

  126. Megan B says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love this updo! I have to say that I tend to go for more of the soft and romantic updos, like this one, rather than more slicked back and super modern.

  127. Holly Peterson says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love a soft updo. Had that on my wedding day and absolutely LOVED it. Love this style too, Kate! Thanks for posting!

  128. Jennifer says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Love! I am so going to try this.

  129. Ariadna says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I love updos like this one! It’s soft but still sexy and fun, and even better when you can do it yourself with a few trial runs! Thanks for this fun tutorial!

  130. Posted January 19, 2015

    WOW, that is amazing. Perfect for a rustic wedding too!

  131. Lisa says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I absolutely love when a woman or actress picks a simple, but elegant dress. Nothing too elaborate, one that just shows how beautiful it makes her feel. Then she adds a beautiful updo or even wearing it down with a soft, face framing way. Oh yes….just a little accent of jewelry. Perfect look for a perfect night!

    My fav. red carpet do would be “classic”. LBD with pearls, red lips, and a sleek up do.

  133. Erica Fondaw says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    Can anyone ever go wrong with a French twist?! Whether sleek and classic or a little more messy they’re beautiful and flatter most every look!

    Posted January 19, 2015

    I loooooooved J.Lo at the Golden Globes! She had a fabulous mix of “not too done” + “glamorous” with her hair. Counting the months (weeks!) until my hair is long enough to attempt her big, loose waves. And the makeup?! Hubba hubba! haha

  146. Evelyn says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like when it is glamorous overall, because with some dresses it is better to do a simple hairdo to avoid too much information. But if it were me going, I’d choose a stunning dress and a hair style that I don’t wear regularly.

    I am always amazed by some of the looks but the ones I LOVE the most tend to be the more romantic feminine flowy style. If only I had a reason to get dressed up like that! Also, LOVE this hairstyle. I’m in a wedding in May and this just got put on the shortlist for how to do my hair.

    I love the EFFORTLESS Hollywood glamour look. Example? Naomi Watts at this year’s Golden Globes. The whole look was so put together. It isn’t my style or something I loved each individual piece, but her whole look was a knockout!

  163. Christine says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    So pretty. I love this tutorial and can’t wait to give it a go. I like the less styled, softer looks and love seeing the “best and worst” too!

  174. Leslie W says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I always love seeing the ladies in natural make-up with rosy checks and blush. Soft wavy hair, pulled to the side of a bare neck is simple, soft, and sofisticated.

  175. JenniT says

  193. Loren says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I don’t like anything too contrived- where the hair seems to wear the person. I really like things that look like they could be arranged by the wearer, something I could copy.

  194. Amy says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    My hair depends on my mood. However I would say soft romantic hair would be best. I have never like the way most updo end up looking on me.

  195. Jennie Page says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    I like soft, slightly messy hair. Maybe that is bc I can’t make a straight part to save my life, or do a tight French braid. You give me great ideas for hair- thanks!

  196. Jenny Naus says
    Posted January 19, 2015

    It depends on the dress, I like all three, the fancy up do’s, the soft feminine look, and also a little messy look.

  229. Kara says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    I like it when the person embraces a dress, hairstyle, and overall look that enhances their best features. For some, the softer, feminine style looks the best; while for others, it might be a more glam updo that suits them best.

  230. Madison says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    This is a super cute updo for a wedding. I love these hair products!

  231. Robin says

    I like something a little bit softer and more feminine.

  232. Amanda says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    I think it depends on the event. Grammy’s – edgy yet tasteful (maybe slicked back updo, red lips), Emmy’s/GG/SAG – classy and elegant (softer colors all around).

  233. Shaelyne Wright says
    Posted January 20, 2015

  236. Becky Revitsky says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    IMO, a formal gown is accentuated best by a pretty updo. The type of updo can be more casual or formal dependent on the style of the dress.

    Can’t wait to watch the new hair tutorial. I will be a bridesmaid in a wedding this year and will be looking for pretty hairstyles for all the wedding events.

  237. Carol S. says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    I definitely love something a little bit softer and more feminine. It looks more attainable and not so much like they have been in a make up and hair styling chair for hours. I love more natural looks.

  238. Stacy says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    I like sleek without being too over the top. Does that even make sense?

    I LOVE Big Sexy Hair products. I currently use the Root Lifter and it’s my favorite!! I haven’t been able to experience their whole line due to price but I try to pick up samples when possible and try out new things.

  250. Jamie Preston says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    No one rocks a chignon on the red carpet like Jessica Alba. Her hair always has a classy, sexy, lived-in look.

  253. Shannon says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    I love red carpet updos, mostly because it is a little different than everyday wear. However, I pay more attention to the dresses.

    Watched the fishtail braid tutorial and couldn’t believe how easy a fishtail was thanks to your easy guided video. I did it on my daughters hair for school this morning and barely got in the door before she got a compliment. This will be my new fave braid. Thank you!

  254. Ashley Davis says
    Posted January 20, 2015

  257. Laura says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    For the red carpet, I like the glam updo. I feel like it works better for the formal dresses. And it shows off the bling better 🙂

    I agree, softer updo’s are much more wearable! Thanks for sharing tutorials for those of us that need a little extra help!

  262. Karen P says

  263. Ashley Crick says
    Posted January 20, 2015

    As a college student, I love the more simple, softer looks. I hardly ever wear my hair up. I adore the half-up, beach waves look.

    Even though I rarely wear my hair up, I will definitely try this style!

  264. Nina says

  285. Donna says
    Posted January 21, 2015

    I love the soft, not so overdone, look. A bit messy but put together. What I don’t like is when they are all dressed up and wear there hair in an “everyday” look, hanging down straight. I have watched just about every tutorial you have done and have recreated many of the looks pretty darn good!

  286. Jenny says
    Posted January 21, 2015

    I would have to vote the “effortless” red carpet look as my favorite. When the hair is not too overdone and looks “lived-in”. Perfection!

    I absolutely love the soft updos! I’m always a fan of the looser, more graceful and natural-looking curls. My particular favorite is one that Julianne Hough wore to a benefit in Beverly Hills. It’s definitely popular on pinterest and would make for a great hair tutorial in the future! 😉

    I never watch those awards shows, but always my choice would be for a conservative, natural look.

  333. LaTanya says

    I like soft curls and pinned up hairstyles in the back similar to your look you created

  334. Posted February 5, 2015

    My favorite red carpet looks are those that are wearing bold or out of the ordinary colors instead of the standard black. I also love red lips!

  335. Brigette says
    Posted February 5, 2015

    I think it really depends on the dress, but it always seems like the less “fussy” the look is, the more attention it gets. For myself, I like the softer, more feminine look 🙂

  411. Posted March 23, 2015

    Hi! I have tried several of your hair tutorials with excellent – good success 🙂 I really appreciate having these to go to. I *so* wanted to have this fishtail twist updo come out right, but after trying twice with dismal results, i gave up. i couldn’t really see what you were doing when you did the “knots”. When I tried it they just looked like,well, little knots in a lock of my hair! My hair is pretty fine, & I used a dry shampoo before starting to give it some texture, but maybe I need something more, like a texture powder Anyway, it would be amazing if you could maybe do an auxiliary video to this one showing a little more detail on how you do those knots. Thank you so much for all you share on your blog! I loves it, lol!

  412. Stacey b says

    Posted June 8, 2015

    This was much more difficult than you make it look. The fishtale braid I can do, the updo part, not so much. Is there a tutorial where you explain better how to do the messy updo part? It just didn’t turn out at all. I have pretty long hair so that may have been part of it. I’m going to try the easy updo first then maybe work on this more difficult one. I’d much rather learn how to do this myself then pay someone to do it.
