Looped Half Updo Supplies:
2 Bobby pins
1 1/4″ Curling iron
Looped Half Updo Instructions:
To prep my hair for this style I curled all of my hair away from the face with a 1 1/4″ curling iron.
Step 1 / Begin by parting your hair where you normally part it. I’ve put mine on the right side.
Step 2 / Next divide off a section of hair on both sides of the head, from the part line down to the ears.
Step 3 / Twist this hair together and bring the two sections together at the back of the head.
Step 4 / Gently pull on the bottom of the twists to make them bigger and more full.
Step 5 / Now tie the two twists together with an elastic band.
Step 6 / Pick up a one inch section of hair underneath the right twist.
Step 7 / Wrap this section around the twist twice, towards the elastic band at the middle.
Step 8 / Pin down the section with a bobby pin, underneath the elastic band.
Step 9 / Now pick up a second section of hair underneath the left twist.
Step 10 / Wrap this around the left twist, twice, and pin it in the middle underneath the elastic band.
Step 11 / Set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.
I’ve been wearing ponytails so often lately and today’s tutorial is a really easy way to dress up one for everyday.
The French fishtail braid is a bit tricky to master, but once you do you’ll have a sophisticated, chic braid that is totally wearable and easy to combine with anything.
I’ve added two dutch braids for this style and love this for a great everyday look. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for watching! xoxo, Missy
Fishtail and Dutch Braid Ponytail Supplies:
Fishtail and Dutch Braid Ponytail Instructions:
Step 1 / To start, divide out a section from the part down to to the left ear and clip away the back hair.
Step 2 / Begin the dutch braid by picking up a section of hair on the heavy side of the part and divide it into three pieces.
Step 3 / Start by crossing the right strand under the middle and then the left strand under the middle.
Step 4 / Then cross the right strand under the middle, and pick up a new section and crossing it under the middle as well.
Step 5 / Then cross the left strand under the middle and bring a new section into the braid.
Step 6 / Repeat those steps continuing the dutch braid down the left side of the hairline and be sure to keep the braid nice and small so there’s hair at the top and back of the head for the fishtail braid later on.
Step 7 / Once hair is brought in at the ear then braid the section to the bottom and cross a bobby pin over the end so it doesn’t unravel.
Step 8 / Now create another dutch braid on the right side, along the hairline and slide a bobby pin over the bottom.
Step 9 / Now create a fishtail french braid with the hair left at the back of the head.
Step 10 / So pick up a section near the crown and divide it into two pieces.
Step 11 / Cross small pieces over to the opposite side while adding in new sections of hair until all of the hair is brought into the braid.
Step 12 / Then continue braiding the section in a fishtail braid crossing small sections over to the opposite side without adding in any new hair.
Step 13 / Once the braid reaches a little further down tie it off with a hair band to create the ponytail.
Step 14 / Then take a small section of hair from the ponytail, wrap it around the hair band and pin it underneath with a bobby pin.
Step 15 / Now take the braid from the right side, wrap it around the ponytail and secure it underneath with a bobby pin.
Step 16 / Then take the other braid and do the same thing, wrapping it around the ponytail, and pinning it underneath with a bobby pin.
I promised a video tutorial for this style exactly one year ago. Time flew by way faster than I imagined but I’m excited to finally be sharing it today.
This hairstyle incorporates two braids trailing up to two little messy buns and it’s a lot easier to do than you might think. My favorite tip is flipping your head upside down so the hair stays out of the way as you braid.
“Space Buns” was one of my very favorite styles in middle school. It was my go-to whenever I was in a pinch and needed to throw my hair into something cute.
This a really fun way to style your hair for the gym, especially with the braids, and would easily transition into an everyday style. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and be sure to let me know what you think down below in the comments!
Double Dutch Braid High Buns Supplies:
2 Hair bands
2 clear elastic bands
Double Dutch Braid High Bun Instruction:
Step 1 / Start by parting the hair wherever you normally part it. I did a diagonal part from the left side back towards the right
Step 2 / Then part the hair down the back of the head creating two halves.
Step 3 / Then tie off one side.
Step 4 / Next flip your head upside down and pick up a small section of hair at the nape of neck, dividing it into three sections for the braid.
Step 5 / Begin a dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle and then the left strand under the middle.
Step 6 / Now cross the right strand under the middle and then pick up a new section of hair crossing it under the middle as well.
Step 7 / Then do the same thing on the left side crossing the left strand under the middle and bringing a new section into the braid.
Step 8 / Repeat those steps crossing the side strands under the middle strand and working up the head.
Step 9 / Once you’ve brought in a section of hair at the top of the ear then just braid the section a little further down in a regular braid.
Step 10 / Cross a bobby pin over the bottom of the braid so it doesn’t unravel.
Step 11 / Then do the same thing with the hair on the left creating a second dutch braid, adding in hair until the braid reaches the ear and then braid a little further down and cross a bobby pin over the end.
Step 12 / Next combine all of the hair on the right side together and wrap a hair band once over the hair and then twist it over your dominant hand.
Step 13 / Remove the bobby pins from the ends of the braid and carefully unravel it.
Step 14 / Now flip the ponytail forwards and spread it around the hair band to form the base of the bun.
Step 15 / Then wrap the hair band twice more over this base.
Step 16 / Then gently pull on the edges to make it a little bigger and tighten it against the head.
Step 17 / Now do the same thing with the hair on the left side, creating a little bun next to the first one.
Step 18 / With the ends left sticking out, loop them back towards the hair band and tuck them in creating another loop.
Step 19 / Then bobby pin down any pieces that are sticking out and go back over the braids pulling on the edges so they’re wider.
Step 20 / Then set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.
Recently, I cut off a few inches of my hair and am excited to be posting a tutorial that is perfect for medium-length hair. I am also not wearing any extensions in this video (yay!) so that’s a bonus too!
There are tons of school dances coming up soon and I think this hairstyle would be so perfect for homecoming or the Christmas dance. Speaking of Christmas it’d also work well for a holiday office party or evening out.
The inspiration behind this look is from Lena @lenabogucharskaya on instagram. She does beautiful work and you should really check out her page if you love to browse hair accounts like I do.
I hope you enjoy this quick tutorial! Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments section down below! Thanks so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

I’m back with another Halloween tutorial! In today’s video, I’m sharing how I created this intricate hairstyle for a woodland fairy. I found this floral crown online and knew I had to use it for a Halloween tutorial this year. Fairy’s are such cute, little creatures and I think it would be so fun to fly around a forest with little fairy wings. I found a few different pictures for inspiration and ended up combining them all together for today’s tutorial. I hope you enjoy it!
Step 2 / Then divide the hair on the left into two sections, a top and bottom section and then clip away the bottom hair.
Step 3 / With the top create a waterfall braid by picking up a section near the part and dividing it into three pieces. Cross the side strands over the middle and begin adding in hair to the top portion of the braid. Then drop down the bottom strand and bring a new section into the braid in its place.
Step 4 / Continue the waterfall braid down the left side of the head until it reaches the back of the head.
Step 5 / Then braid the section a little further down and cross a bobby pin over the bottom.
Step 6 / Now create a french braid underneath the waterfall braid bringing the waterfall sections into the braid. Once all of the sections are brought in then braid the hair a little further down and secure the bottom with a bobby pin.
Step 7 / Now create another french braid starting from the right side of the head and curving the braid around the back of the head.
Step 8 / Then go back over the braid and pull on the looped pieces until the braid is really big and full.
Step 9 / Now create another french braid underneath it, adding in hair until the braid reaches the back of the right ear.
Step 10 / Then braid it a little further down and go back over the braid pulling on the looped sections to make it twice as big before sliding a bobby pin over the end.
Step 11 / Now pin the braids from the right side to the back of the head with bobby pins so they stay in place.
Step 12 / Then take the two braids from the left side and lay them over the top, pinning them in place at the back of the head.
Step 13 / With the remaining hair create a regular three strand but to make it look more intricate wrap one of the side sections around the entire braid before crossing it over the middle.
Step 14 / Then go back over the braid and pull on the edges to make it extra big and messy looking.
Step 15 / Tie off the braid with an elastic band and tighten the bottom of the braid so it slides up and hides underneath the wrapped sections.
Step 16 / Then to finish off the costume add flower crown to the front of head with bobby pins.
