This summer, one of our favorite pinning genres (that's a thing, right?) has undoubtedly been braids. We love how Pinners have been perfecting messy styles that look polished in a beautifully beachy way that we can't help but want to emulate. The braid we are are most bananas over has got to be the fishtail — must be a continuation of the beachy thing, or maybe it's the fact that our desire to be The Little Mermaid hasn't dampened with age. Take a peek at these beautiful images to discover some new twists on artfully plaited tresses, and maybe even pick up a few pointers to step up your weaving game.
