Herringbone with flowering mint.

Hello there. I wanted to quickly share this pretty hairstyle that I did on my dear Marissa Mei, who was attending a wedding one day and needed an impromptu hair-do. I happened to be on hand, and I’m always ready to jump into hair mode, because it is like a language that my hands speak.

7U6A89837U6A89927U6A90177U6A90207U6A90437U6A9057I did a soft herringbone braid, (fishtail!) which wrapped around the back of her head and continued down one side. Technically it was a french herringbone, (which just means you add hair from either side as you go in the beginning.)

My friend Corrina suggested I add mint into the braid, because there happened to be mint growing in the front of the house that we were at. It was beginning to go to seed, so there was a bit of flowering happening which added a lovely lacy touch.

After adding the mint and securing the ends of the braid, I used this trick to deconstruct the heck out of braid to soften it and give it a more romantic wedding-y feel. I had to go back in with strategically placed bobby pins to re-secure some of the mint after that!

Everywhere Marissa walked that day, the smell of fresh sun-kissed mint followed her like a shadow. She looked and smelled so lovely!

This tutorial was partially shot by Corrina, so a big thank you to her! You will see her one of these days on HTHG, probably with all kinds of fall colors in her hair.

xoxo, HTHG
