Nasty Gal // Half-Up Twisted Fishtail Braid

Nasty Gal // Half-Up Twisted Fishtail Braid

If you're the photoshoot stylist, hair stylist, wardrobe stylist and curator of a blog when it comes to braiding your own hair you want to do something easy. And that's exactly what this braid is; easy. I didn't want to start Braids and Bikinis doing crazy elaborate braids that normal people couldn't recreate! My hair is average, it's fine, limp/stick straight and an average length. How often do you see girls walking around with crazy braids that look they just got off the set of The Hunger Games? Never! I wanted to showcase simple braids anyone could do on themselves. You don't need a cosmetology license for this! 

This Nasty Gal bikini is part of their swimwear collection they came out with this spring. I was excited to find a burnt orange color to add to my wardrobe! I love the movement of wearing high-waisted bikini bottoms. As funny as it is to admit out loud, on a blog I created to showcase bikinis, I'm a normal person. I don't actually love my body in a swimsuit. Most times pre-photoshoot I have to give myself a pep talk that it's okay I love food, throw on a high-waisted suit when you're not feeling 100%. Or rock is the way you want, I fully back it either way.
