Dutch Fishtail Updo/Summer Hairstyle

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great summer (or winter as the case may be πŸ˜€ ) As I’ve said before, I love dutch fishtail braids, and am always trying to incorporate them into a new hairstyle. While I was away after Christmas I came up with this cool updo, with a dutch fishtail on the heavier side of my part, and a normal dutch braid of the lighter side. It’s a nice updo for a hot summer day (I did mine to look a little bit messier, but if you took the extra time to make it a bit more polished, it could be quite a fancy style. πŸ˜‰ )

Items needed: a handful of bobby pins, 2 rubber hair ties, and hairspray (is desired)

Time: 10-15 minutes

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Begin by parting your hair off to one side..
  2. Next start a dutch fishtail braid on the heavy side of the part..
  3. Once you’ve braided up to about your ear, stop adding in hair and finish off with a regular fishtail..
  4. When you reach the ends gently go back and pancake the braid (tug on the edges of the braid for a fuller effect.) Then secure with an elastic..
  5. Now go to the other side of you head a do a regular 3 strand dutch braid, doing the same thing you did with the fishtail, (once you stop adding in hair, finish off with a normal plait and pancake the braid.)
  6. Secure with an elastic..
  7. Now secure the remaining hair that you have out of the braids at the back of your head with a hair tie..
  8. Plait the hair in the ponytail, and secure with a rubber hair tie..
  9. Roll the ponytail-plait into a bun and secure with bobby pins..
  10. All you need to do now is pin the two braids around the bun and you’re good to go! πŸ˜‰
