This is definitely worth a closer look…

Leave it to beautiful singer Kelly Rowland to give us a new spin on the classic half-up, half-down hairstyle! Here the star twisted side sections away from the face and then brings them together into a stunning Fishtail Braid at the back! It’s a clever way to keep a coif controlled while showing off some intricate braiding work. For a similar style stance, use hair pins to secure the braid at its center (you may also want to pop in a few pins along the sides). Once the plait is formed, pull it apart slightly to “flatten” the braid. Keep remaining lengths softly waved to best showcase the style detail.
