Lovely festival style for medium hairHey, guys—it's Katie here again! I promised you another hairstyle for medium-length hair, and I'm here to deliver. This style looks great with a fishtail braid, but if you haven't quite mastered the fishtail (here's a video to help you out), fear not! This style is just as cute with a simple, traditional braid.

Step 1- create waves with your curling ironPretty wavesTo begin, I curled Emma's hair with a small barrel curling iron. Feel free to bust out your sea salt spray for no heat curls the night before.

Start with a fishtail on one sideFishtail braid one side and repeat on the otherRepeat the fishtail on the other sideStep One: Create a fishtail braid from a section of hair on one side of the head. Secure with an elastic and repeat on the other side.

Bring the sides together and tie in a knotStep Two: Once you have both sides braided, bring them together and tie them in a knot at the back of the head. 

Tie hair in a knot again and remove hair elasticsStep Three: Tie the hair in a knot a second time and secure with one or two bobby pins. Remove the hair elastics once the knot is pinned and let the braided ends fall straight.
