Barefoot BlondeTOP: French Connection c/o (on sale!) // LIPSTICK: NARS ‘Heat Wave’ // HAIR CLIP: Nordstrom – also love this and this

I am just so gosh dang excited because I FINALLY got my computer/iMovie working properly (thanks to my husband) and now making tutorials is such a breeze! Honestly it used to take me up to 14 hours just to edit them (not exaggerating) because it would take hours to upload the videos, it would freeze, then crash, etc. so I rarely ever had time to deal with that but now that it takes me a normal amount of time I am so excited to actually do more tutorials like I keep saying I am going to!

Today I have this Blake Lively inspired fishtail braid tutorial for you and it is actually pretty easy, just time consuming since fishtails always take a bit of time. So I hope you guys like it and if you try it out be sure to tag me in your instagrams (@amberfillerup)! I lovvve when you guys do that and getting to see you guys try them out. (make sure you actually tag me in the photo not just the caption otherwise it gets lost in my feed since I don’t check my insta a ton during the day. You’ll know I saw it if I like and comment on it!)

Oh PS the song (called Malibu) is by my husband’s band he used to be in, Shark Speed! I listen to their songs all the time, I sometimes wish he still played in it 🙂

  1. I did it! It’s so pretty and easy to do 🙂 It looks amazing!! Thanks for the tutorial.

  2. I used this tutorial (and the clip-in extensions 101 tutorial) to do my hair for a friend’s wedding. The video was super easy to follow along with and the results were much better than I thought they’d be! Can’t wait to try more of the tutorials out. I am in a true southern wedding this month – any tutorials on “the higher the hair, the closer to God” ‘dos? Thanks!

  3. This is such a fun tutorial, I literally just did this to my hair. It works Waaaay better with extentions in your hair. I have naturally thick hair and it is very long, but again still needs extensions.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Yes! So lovely. Great tutorial. I’ve been back and forth with the idea of getting hair extensions so I could do fun hairstyles like this! I enjoy having medium length hair for the most part, but need more length to do certain hair styles. I may just have to go ahead and purchase some so I can do this!! Thanks so much for sharing this Amber. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Honestly I say do it! I use my extensions all the time to add to my styles and it makes all the difference, definitely worth it! xx

  8. Such a cute hairstyle. Can you pleeeeaase do a tutorial for finger waves? xx

    1. Thanks girl! and oh my heck yes I totally have been meaning to do that! Great idea.

  9. I am loving all the tutorials you are doing! I love all your fashion posts, but it’s nice to get a break and see some of your great recommendations and tips 🙂 Keep ’em coming!!!

  10. How do u view the video. Everytime I hit play it goes straight to a :01 sec video and straight to the end?

    1. Hmm I am not sure why it is doing that, it doesn’t seem to be doing that for me! I am sorry, maybe just try clicking on the title of the video and watching it in youtube!

  11. Great video. Thanks for making it. I love this look and the added clip is a great finishing touch.

    Happy Friday!

  12. Gorgeous! I love your extensions – I think I am missing where you said they were from? Are they bombshell extensions by chance? I am wearing my hair down for my wedding and I want to get some extensions to give me some more volume and a little length, what brand would you recommend? I’ve never used them before so I’m excited to try them out!


    1. Yes they are Bombshell Extensions!! I would definitely recommend them! I have the color and length and everything on my description in the video! xx
