Beauty in motion: Fishtail braid

While one braid is too plain, two braids make you look too young. But, there's a perfect balance between the two hairstyles. The fishtail offers you something that a mere single braid can't pull off: an effortless hairstyle that is equally casual as it is chic, minus the work. 

The 'do not only gets you an Instagram-worthy style, but it's a quick and easy look that's perfect for summer. And although it may look difficult and too ornate to copy, the style is actually so easy to replicate at home -- you don't need to be a braid wizard to get the look! 

Watch above to see how the entire look comes together in this week's beauty in motion
