Fall Hair Trend to Try: The Introverted Fishtail Braid

As summer was coming to a close this year, we teamed up with Pantene to get all of the deets on this fall’s hottest hair trends. We saw beachy low buns, an upgraded ponytail and trendy new ways to wear traditional braids, but we just can’t get enough of this fresh take on introverted fishtail. Check out this in-depth tutorial (modeled by the lovely Nina from The HSS Feed) and we know you’ll love it as much as we do!

1. Begin by parting your hair to one side. Then, grab a 2” section of strands at your hairline and separate into two pieces.

2. Take a small, half-inch piece from the right section of hair, pulling underneath and over the left section. Repeat on the opposite side.

3. Continue twisting down toward the nape of your neck, keeping the braid close to your hairline.

4. As the braid moves down past your ear, pull hair into it from the opposite side of your head to ensure that all of your strands are included in the style.

5. Once your locks have all been pulled into the braid, continue your fishtail until you’re 3” away from the end of your strands.

6. Secure with a clear plastic ponytail, then loosen the braid by tugging at the sides (starting from the bottom and working your way up).

7. Mist with hairspray to hold in place.

5 Fall-Inspired Athleisure Looks to Try this Season

As fall transitions us to cooler months, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear this season’s hottest trends. From style tips to makeup trends to home décor, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas gear up for fall weather.

As summer turns to autumn and your schedule is as busy as ever, it can be easy to fall out of your exercise routine. We know cooler temps can make us want to stay inside, so we asked six style bloggers how their favorite workout gear keeps them motivated throughout the season.

Natalie from Natalie in the City is all about bright and bold workout gear this fall.

“Wearing brightly-colored gym attire gives me that extra boost of energy and provides me with the right amount of motivation to fit my workouts into my busy schedule. The athleisure trend is also hotter than ever – and these Puma leggings and t-shirt could easily be accessorized with a track jacket tied around my waist. It’s a great street style look for after the gym.”

Nina, the blogger behind The HSS Feed, loves when comfy and put-together can be one and the same.

“I’m so glad that the athleisure trend is big this fall because, as a busy mom and blogger, active wear is often times my every day wear! These Spaulding leggings are high-waisted and really supportive, so they’re great for a workout or an afternoon running errands. I paired them with an easy tee and cozy sweatshirt, which is great for layering as we experience cooler temps.”

Candace of Live, Love and Read appreciates the minimalism of the athleisure trend.

“You can take the most simple and comfortable fabrics, mix and match them, then add a great sneaker to have the perfect casual look. As a society, we are often so consumed with all things glamorous. I’m thrilled to see that the athleisure trend is making room for stylish, yet practical fashion.  It’s definitely a trend that I’ve grown to love, appreciate and value.”

Tieka, the fashionista behind Selective Potential, will be wearing lots of colorful activewear this fall.

“These bright and colorful workout pants from Adidas are great. I love being able to play with brighter colors in athleisure trends, since I don’t always tend to do that in my everyday style. I paired it with a black tee and a pair of colorful kicks.”

Andrea of Blonde Bedhead can’t get enough of athletic wear that transforms into an all-day ensemble.

“With Reebok’s RBX high quality (and pretty) leggings, bold Skechers, easy tanks and colorful sports bras, the trip to the gym doesn’t have to be such a drag. I feel so much more on my game if I look the part, and I liked straying from my typical all-black workout ensemble. This is something I could wear to the gym, and then the rest of my day!”

No matter if you’re hitting the gym or just getting in a few extra steps, make sure you have the right shoes to both look and feel great. How will this fall’s athleisure trend reflect your own personal lifestyle?
