Ramp Ready- Fishtail Braided Bun

1 comment2002 views

Summer is officially here! It’s the best season to experiment with hairstyles that will keep the hair off your back and neck and look stylish too. I point you steps on how to get that perfect fishtail braided bun that I tried last week.

Step 1

Tie your hair as a side ponytail. This step will help you keep the braid in place.

Step 2

Section your ponytail into two and hold one side in each hand. Keep both sections separate as you braid.

Step 3

Cross a thin strand of hair from the left to the right. Pull it over from the top of the left section and hold it under the right section.

Step 4

Repeat step 3 on the right side.  Cross a thin strand of hair from the right to the left. Pull it over from the top of the right section and hold it under the left section.

Step 5

Repeat the step 3 and 4 all way down the ponytail. Each time cross a skinny piece of strand from one side of the ponytail to the other side. As you may reach the end, you will have a perfect fishtail braid.

Step 6

Tie the end of the braid and secure it with small, clear elastic. Gently pull the sides of the braid to make your hair look thicker and fuller. Easy stretching will help to emphasize the shape of the braid.

Note: For those who have short hair, just a beautiful fishtail braid is perhaps what you need to look ramp ready. Add a barrette, or a cute ribbon to give it some personality.

Bonus tip: To make it look unique, add clear elastic after every 1 ½ to 2 inch braid and make little fishtails of your hair.

Step 7

Twist your fishtail braid into a bun. Wind it up and around to form a killer bun.

Step 8

Pin it up and you are done! Enjoy your new look with pretty summer wrap dress or a flowing maxi.

Even though fishtail braids look a little complicated (at-least that’s what I felt in the beginning), they are surprisingly easy. So, I suggest bun it up this summer and romance a new look!
