Fishtail Double Braid Hair Tutorial

What you'll need:

-head chain (we used this one HERE)

-clear hair elastics


1. start by parting you hair in the center

2. place head chain on and make sure that its secure

3. separate hair in half and pull each section over your shoulder

4. start on one side and separate hair into two sections

5. begin a two strand fishtail braid

            a. Use your finger to separate a small section of your hair from the outer edge  and cross it over to the opposite side (overlapping just like you would if you were doing a standard braid)

            b. Still holding two sections. Repeat with a small section from the other side

            c. Continue overlapping pieces from both sides of your ponytail, all the way down to your ends or where you would like the braid to stop

6. stop about halfway down the ponytail. i like the look to have more of a "pony" at the end but you can braid as far down as you'd like

7. secure with a clear elastic and pull strands out on each side of the braid to give it a fuller and messier look

TIP: i dont pull every piece the same amount, and some i don't pul out at all, this gives it a less uniform look

8. repeat steps 4-7 on the other side
