Half Up Twisted Fishtail

Half Up Twisted Fishtail


First of all, hello! I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys in so long.

I could go on and on about why blog posts have been extremely slow, but the short answer is: life. I’m simply just learning to balance college, work, my personal life and this blog. Although I love sharing on my blog, other more important things have to comes first sometimes. I think I have come up with a pretty good system to keep them all in balance. So from now on things should be back to normal! Yay!

I thought I would come back with one of my new favorite (and super easy) braided hair do’s. If you couldn’t tell I’ve been really into trying cute new hair styles, especially braided ones.

I’ve seen this all over the internet and decided to create my own version. So here we go!

I really love this braided half up do on both curly and straight hair! It works just as easily on both. The first picture at the top of this post is the braid in my natural wavy hair. My hair is a little crazy when I let it air dry, but this is a great (and cute!) way to hold your crazy hair back.

First you are going to section off the front sections on both sides of your head.

Next you are going to do a rope braid on both sides and meet them in the back. For anyone wondering, to do a rope braid, you separate the hair into two sections and twist them around each other. Then connect the two braids with a small hair tie in the back of your head. Like shown below.

Then you are going to take a section of hair from underneath your little pony tail and combine is with the pony tail, which is shown in the picture above on the right.

You will then take this pony tail and separate it into two sections. Like shown below.

You will then continue you with a normal fishtail braid.

For those of you that do not know how to fishtail, I’ll teach you now!

First, you are going to take a small section of hair from the outside of the left section and cross it over into the right section. Then take a small section of hair from the outside of the right section and cross it over to the left. I tried to demonstrate below the best I could. If you have an questions feel free to ask!

Continue the fishtail all the way to the end, than loosen the pieces before tying off.

And you’re done! Now you have cool braid.

I hope you enjoyed and as always, thanks for reading!

Love, Hannah Lee
