Fishy Business

Serena Van Der Woodsen has been sporting it for months, your mum probably sported it in the early ‘80s and now the fishtail plait is appearing in your office, the local pub, a book festival and on unassuming children in primary schools.

The FTP is currently the bane of my life.

I had a dream. And that dream was to have long flowing red hair, much like a mermaid, however boredom sets in and the ‘professional’ hairdressing scissors (superdrug) find their way into my hands and start modifying the look. Last time I went to the hairdressers he could only sigh and try to fix my fringe which was a good few centimetres shorter on one side than the other- resulting in a ‘style’ which resembled my hair falling off my head.

I got serious hair envy when I saw someone at work with an amazing fishtail and decided to try it myself, with the help of Alexa Chung, Henry Holland and a hair guru tutorial- no joy. The only thing I seem to be able to produce looks like…well shit.

So I am now just sitting and waiting for a hair miracle.
