I am doing a fishtail updo tutorial today. It has been extremely hot lately, so I love figuring out different ways to get my hair out of my face. Whether it be pinned back half-do's or full slick back updos. Hair do's that get my hair out of my face are my best friends. I was experimenting today because the weather is extremely hot, and I came up with this fishtail ready updo.
As I have mentioned before braids are my absolute favorite. I try to find many different ways to incorporate a braid in my hair.
This hairstyle is a little time consuming, but not too much. So let's get started.
Begin by grabbing a section of hair (Left), and then fishtail braiding it about 3/4 of the way down (right). You will be doing that on both sides of your head.
*You should have two fishtail braids on the top, and two twisted sections on the bottom(right).
Once you have braided this section you will roll the braid into a bun and bobby pin it into place. How many bobby pins you use, depend on how thick or thin your hair is. I had to use quite a few for it to be secured.
You're all done!
Yay! I absolutely love the texture of the fishtail braids. They make a cute and sassy messy updo. If you are not a big fan of all the messiness then go ahead and put a frizz serum before you start your braid, or try a spritz of hairspray. If you have any suggestions or requests feel free to send them to me via email. I love a good challenge. I hope you have a wonderful day, and please stay hydrated.
