An upside down braid is exactly what it sounds like: a braid that starts at the bottom of your head (near the nape of your neck) and goes upwards until it reaches the crown. At that point, you stop plaiting and finish the look with a bun or ponytail. This style is seriously cool and although it looks fancy, it really isn’t that hard to master — but it might take a few tries to get it right.
This kind of 'do made quite a splash on the red carpet last year, and judging from the looks we’ve seen celebs sporting so far in 2013, it’s a trend that’s here to stay. It’s not hard to wonder why the braided updo is so popular: It’s chic yet casual, sexy yet polished, and adds interest to your look. This braid goes across the top of your head and looks sort of like a headband. It also leaves the ends of your hair loose, meaning you can do whatever you like with it: A low bun or pony are great options. Want to try this look?
If you have gorgeous thick hair, the fishtail is a style that’s made for you. Flaunted by beauties like Blake Lively, Cheryl Cole and Rihanna, the fishtail suits every occasion. If you’re going for a polished look, wear it tight and sleek, and if you prefer softer styles and don’t want to look too "done", wear it a little looser. The fishtail is a twist on the ordinary plait, and as such, it does take a little more effort. But with a bit of practice, you’ll get the hang of it in no time.
