So Frenchy So Chic festival wrapped up last weekend in Sydney with another beautiful day out in the sun with French music, food and beauty. Festival Beauty Partner, Kérastase’s Braid Bar proved popular with festival goers who queued up to seek some hair advice and also have a braid done in their hair. One of the most popular styles amongst festival goers was the Classic Undone Side Fishtail braid and we talked to the beautiful team at Kérastase to get their ‘How To’ on how to achieve the look.

Step 3 Take a thin strong from the outside of any of the sections. Bring it to the inside of the opposite section. Do the same on the other section. Now pull tight.

Step 4 Repeat the steps 2 and 3 for developing an inverted braided pattern. Keep developing the braid to the very end of your hair.

Step 5 Soften the fishtail by gently pulling at each side of the braid from top to bottom to refine and add texture. Finish with Kérastase Laque Couture.
