Beat the Heat Hair Styles: The Fishtail Braid



During the hot summer months - especially this 97 degree New York heat - it’s often just plain unbearable to wear long flowy hair. If you want to show off your hair length without breaking out in sweats, try a braid, a ponytail, or a combo of the two with a braided ponytail. Blake Lively’s fishtail braid ponytail is a chic way to beat the heat and still wear long lengths. High, low, or off to the side, there are plenty of ways to put your own touch to this style.
