Today I have teamed up with Sephora to show you guys how to do this half-up fishtail look!! I love looks where I can have my hair down but add a little somethin somethin to it! I used some of my favorite new hair brands in the tutorial. The first is Ouai which is Jen Atkin’s line and if you dont know who Jen is, she is an UNREAL hair stylist!!! I love love love how she did Kendall Jenner’s hair for the MTV Movie Awards. The second is Living Proof that smells soo good and is such a good hair spray for braided, bohemian looks. Watch the tutorial above and make sure to tag all of your recreations with #TrendingAtSephora and #braids – we would love to see them!!!

*Thanks to Sephora for sponsoring this post.

  11. hi!

    I know this post isn’t about this but I thought I would just comment and give you a suggestion(: you said Rosie spits up a lot and my baby did too but I brought him to the chiropractor and it ended up his spine was out of alignment and they fixed the problem with one adjustment(: I don’t know your opinions on chiropractors but my whole family has used the same one for 20 years and he’s helped with so many problems including spitting up(: you should check into a chiropractor for Rosie!

    1. Hi love!! Thanks so much for the suggestion, we will definitely look into that 🙂 I appreciate it!

  12. Love this look! I tried it out this morning. It will take a bit more practice before mine looks as good as yours, but I’m still loving it! No one seems to be able to make braids look quite as good and effortless as you!! Thanks for the video 🙂 Xoxo

    1. Yay!! So glad you tried it!! I bet it looks gorgeous on you! 🙂 xo

  13. I love the colors on your shirt & your lip color! What a great combo & your hair looks amazing! Love any sort of fish-tail braid!!! 🙂

  14. Love this hair style, I am a huge fan of half of my hair kept out of my face but the rest of it still being down. Now I just need to master how to actually fishtail braid my hair haha

    Hope you are enjoying your trip, your Instagram photos are super cute!


    1. Thanks so much Taylor!! And yes! Just keep practicing fish tailing and it will be easy in no time 🙂

  15. Ooo so pretty! Love your top here too. Thank you for the tutorial 🙂

  16. Hey amber I have a quick question. I fell in love with your vlogs you do on your YouTube channel and I was wondering what camera you used? You have inspired me to create my own vlogs and I want to do them correctly. Thank you so much!!

    1. We typically use our Canon G7X for vlogging and for other travel videos we use our GoPro and Canon 5d mark iii 🙂 I hope that helps!! Thanks for following along!! xo

  17. You are absolutely flawless!!!! Just beautiful!!! ???? the look so much!!! xoxo

  18. This hairstyle is too adorable!!! Amber, do you have any tips for making your braids look thicker if you have very fine hair? Thanks!!!

    1. Thank you gorgeous!! We are having a great time! 🙂 Have a fab rest of your week!! xo

  19. Soooo gorgeous!!!! What VSCO cam filter/ letter # is this?!! 🙂 what are some of your favorites? Xo

  20. You are seriously so talented with hair! I really need to work on my fishtail braids. You look amazing! I have heard so many good things about living proof. I need to try out some of their products. 🙂

  21. I love your videos Amber! Just watched this one while having a late lunch– such a fun little treat in my day 🙂 I’m wondering if it’d work on hair as short as mine; I guess I will just have to try it and see!

    Also, somehow I missed your last post but I just read that too and all 4 looks are to die for! The Zimmerman pants are INCREDIBLE. I literally think my jaw hit the floor! They are a bit out of my price range but I hope a fast-fashion joint makes a dupe of those soon because they are unrealllll.
