Inverted Fishtail Headband Braid

An inverted fishtail headband braid is the upside down version of a regular fishtail braid. With the braid starting at the part and trailing across the forehead, it creates a gorgeous headband style. I love this braid for the upcoming holidays and think it would be absolutely perfect for a holiday party or family gathering. Dress it up with a gorgeous clip and you are ready to go! This one seen here is from Ulta.
