Braids are unbelievably popular for any season, especially for the coming summer as it’s very comfy, easy to make and awesome for any kind of summer outfit. This hairstyle combines a French fishtail with a more traditional braid, making it super versatile and easy to play around with, depending on your style.
Take a small section of hair from your hairline and split it into two equal halves. Cross the right section of hair over the left. Take a new piece of hair from the left and cross it over to the right. Continue incorporating new pieces of hair and crossing them over in alternating sections until you reach the back of the crown. Secure the braid with a bobby pin. Gather the remaining hair in a ponytail and tie it off with an elastic band. Take a small piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the band to hide the elastic. Secure it with bobby pins. Split the ponytail into two equal sections to start the fishtail braid. Take a small strand from the left section and cross it over to the right section. Now take a small strand from the right section and cross it over to the left. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the ponytail. Tie it off with elastic band. Gently pull each stitch and spread it to create fullness. Spray a firm hold hairspray to finish off the look.
For a more polished look, smooth out the sides for a sleeker, refined finish. For a more laid-back, messy look, work with flyaways – instead of concealing them. Voila! Now you are ready to go to a party, date, beach or wherever you want with this stylish braid.
