Fishtail French Braid Ponytail

This has always been one of my favorite hairstyles. I posted a picture of this style recently on instagram and realized I’ve never done a tutorial for it. If you already know how to fishtail braid then you can easily learn the french braid version. This only takes a few minutes to do and you don’t need to be a pro to learn it. It’s such a great everyday style so I hope you give it a try! xo, Missy
