Get Amy Schumer's Fishtail Braid With This Tutorial By Lo Bosworth
This comedian has a long resumé of rolling around in bed with robots and speaking her mind on gun control, but she also has a pretty great hair background as well. Amy Schumer's faux fishtail braid, which she rocked at her most recent press event for Trainwreck, showed exactly why this star was named an It-girl of the summer. She's got brains, beauty, and a great sense of humor.
The star has made stylish appearances at numerous red carpet premieres and other events during the promotional tour for her hit movie Trainwreck. She rocked a gorgeous side braid at the Australian premiere of the film, and she brought back the look in her latest Instagram post. Schumer posted a photo from a press event in Switzerland where she rocked a similar side braid, making it clear that this is her signature style of the summer.
Wearing a red patterned dress and black flats, the star looked effortless in her fisthtail-style braid, which was unique because of the level of texture and volume. Schumer pulled a few pieces of hair out and messed up the braid a bit, which looked fabulous with a dramatic side part. Take a look at the shaggy-chic 'do.
