Tutorial: Fishtail Maude Braids (of the pully nature.)

Now that we know how cool it looks to pull at our fishtail braids, I thought I’d show you a few ways to wear ‘em!

As many of you know, Harold and Maude is one of my all time favorite movies. Maude is a dream. I aspire to have her courage and timeless youthfulness. Anyway, she wears her hair in two braids piled up on top of her head for most of the movie, I wrote about it here. This style below is really just a fancy Maude style, swapping out the normal braids for pully fishtails braids.

┬áHere’s how you do it:

1. Do this.
2. Pull both braids up onto the top of your head (one at a time if you prefer)
3. Pin them in place, making sure the ends of your fishtails are tucked underneath each other.
4. Take a cue from Maude. Sing some Cat Stevens. Run from the cops. Get a boyfriend 50 years your junior.

I think this style looks so awesome with the pulled fishtail spin. I wore it to a Physique 57 class and felt super cool while I pathetically tried to lunge and squeeze my thighs in pain for an hour straight.

    Just wanted to let you know, links don’t seem to be working on “here” (referring to where you wrote about Maude) and “this” (linking, I assume, to the post where you showed pulled fishtail braids). Just wanted to give you a heads up :) Braids are super super cute!

    How are you able to braid your own hair so well? I can barely reach the back of my head let alone manage to make a straight fishtail braid!

    Random side note. I hope that if you ever have the chance to have a second daughter, you name her maude, since the combo of PIper & Maude (nicknames pippy and mo) is unbeatable.
