The star-studded American Music Awards (AMAs) this past Sunday played host to some memorable performances and also a few award-winning hairstyles. How to get strands like the stars? It’s super-easy with tips from celeb stylist Sherri Jessee.
Braids are all the rage and Taylor Swift was really the big winner of the night for this style. T-Swift’s simple side pony was dressed up with a few strands of a fishbone braid.
Get the look:
1. Sweep your hair to one side. Hold low and tight at the nape of your neck and split into two sections. (Rather than using three strands like a classic braid, a fishbone braid only uses two.)
2. Take a tiny section of hair from the left side and cross it over to join the right side.
3. Then, take a tiny section of hair from the right side and cross it over to join the left side.
4. Continue on in this manner until you have the desired length for your braid. Tie off the end with a few pins or a clear elastic.
