If you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve have sort of turned Sundays into my hair tutorial day. It was a little unintentional, but I like it. So expect new hairstyles on Sundays! I’m not promising every Sunday though. But I have been feeling pretty inspired with hair lately, so for now, Sundays are looking good and full of braids!

Today’s tutorial is fairly simple, but I love it too much not to share.

I feel like pigtail braids have been everywhere lately. So I decided to spice them up a little! Plus these braids work (and look great) on so many different lengths of hair. I know some of my tutorials can be hard for girls for shorter hair, but this will work for multiple lengths. 

Anyways, lets get started!

  1. Start by parting your hair down the middle and separating it into two sections (one for each braid). Begin dutch braiding on one side. For those that don’t know, a dutch braid is when you place the outside sections underneath the middle. You can learn more about dutch braiding here!

2.  Continue the dutch braid until you have added in all of your hair.

3.  Then split the middle section and add that to the two outside sections. Now you will have 2 sections for a fishtail braid.

4. Fishtail braid all the way down the hair. To fishtail, take a small piece of hair from one of the sections and cross it over to the other section. To learn more about fishtail braiding, check out this post here!

5.  Repeat the same braid on the other side.

6. Then pull apart and loosen the braids. This will add volume to the braids. Don’t be afraid to mess them up a little too!
