Braid 5-Double Fishtail Braids


Braid 5-Double Fishtail Braids is pretty much my new favorite hairstyle. (Check out this Fishtail Braid tutorial if you have never tried one before.)

This hairstyle is the perfect change up from a traditional braid and is easy to achieve if you already love a good fishtail braid.

It is quick to throw together in a few minutes, yet still offers a hint of chic with two fishtail braids braided together at the bottom to create a seamless blend between them.Β Check out the steps below to see how I got the look!

1 / Begin by separating out a section of hair on the heavy side of the part.

2 / Divide this section into two equal halves.

3 / Take a smaller piece from one of the halves and cross it over the top and add it to the other section.

4 / Now, repeat step three with the opposite side.

5 / Continue braiding down until you reach about 3/4th of the way to the bottom of the strand.

6 / Tie the braid off with an elastic band.

7 / Take a second section of hair from underneath the first one and braid it down into a section fishtail braid.

8 / When the second braid reaches 3/4th of the way to the bottom, remove the elastic from the first braid, and finish braiding the two strands together. Then tie off the braid with the elastic band.

9 / Finish by adding a pretty clip to the top of the braids.

10 / Now smile because your hair is fabulous.
