Fishtail Side Braid

*Bonus Post*

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! We have a special bonus post for  you today!

Hey hey hey, everyone! Today, I have a super easy, super cute hairstyle to show y’all! So, this is one of my favorites to do when my hair is just a plain old mess, and I want that somewhat boho style. It’s really easy, takes little timing, and comes out really cute! Let’s get to it!

Items needed: two bobby pins, one elastic, and hairspray if desired.

Time: roughly 5 minutes

Difficulty: medium

1. Alrighty, to start, grab a small section of hair, anywhere from about a half an inch to an inch away from the front of your face.

2.With this section, begin to French-fishtail (by adding in hair to a normal fishtail braid) the the section until you get to the back of your ear (if you’re dealing with short hair, you may want to do the braid with smaller sections.)

3. Now, with that hair, continue to fishtail-braid (but you’re not adding hair in anymore!)

 

4.When you get to the end of your braid, hold it somewhat tightly, so that you do not undo your work.

5.Then, begin pancaking the braid by tugging on the edges (little tip: if you’re looking for a messier appearance, pancake the braid a bit more.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Secure the pancaked braid with an elastic. Then, pin the braid to your desired placing (I like to hide my bobby pins, so I make sure to pin my braid behind a section of hair.)

And that’s all there is to it! If you’re dealing with shorter hair like mine, I would suggest hairspraying it.

Another little tip: if you want an even messier, boho appearance, grab different sizes of sections of hair throughout the braiding—rather than the same all the way through. (; Anywho! That’s about it!

(If you want a more formal look or just perhaps a tad fancier, I recommend curling your hair.  This side braid looks really cute on curly hair! And also try to make the braid as even a possible.)

Thanks for reading! Happy hairstyling, y’all!

Lace Braided Headband

Hi everyone! My name’s Hannah and I absolutely love doing hairstyles. I’m still learning but I want to share hairstyles I have learnt to anyone who is starting out, because if I can do it, you can do it! In this hairstyle, I’m showing a simple type of head band braid that’s suitable for almost any hair lengths, is super quick and cute and gets the hair out of your face! Have fun 🙂

Items needed: 4 bobby pins, 1-2 hair ties, and hairspray (if desired)

Skill level: easy-medium

Time: 5-10 minutes (depending on your hair length ect.)

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Part your hair to one side.
  2. Grab a small section of hair on one side of the parted line.
  3. Begin lace braiding the hair, only picking up strands on one side (closest to forehead).
  4. Continue braiding until you reach your ear, then continue with a plait.
  5. Secure the ends with a hair tie for now..
  6. Repeat this process with a section of hair on the other side of the part line.
  7. Then bobby pin both plaits under a section of hair on the back of your head.
  8. And you’re done! Feel free to add hairspray and tug on the braid to make it look bigger if you want to.
