Summer Hair Inspiration Part III

The last hairstyle In Style suggests for easy summer hair is the side fishtail braid that they showed Leona Lewis wearing.
I did mine on wet hair, so it wasn't as messy at first, but it got messier as my hair dried.
To create:
Pull hair to one side, but don't secure.
Divide into two even pieces.
Take small section of hair from under one of the pieces and wrap it over that section and under the other.
Repeat, alternating sides until the end.
Secure with a clear band, then gently massage braid to loosen.

If you find the fishtail braid too difficult, just braid using three uneven sections to give you a similar knotty effect.
