DIY Faux Fishtail Braid in 5 Minutes



This Spring, braids are a huge trend, but there’s only one problem, braids are really hard to do (especially on your own head)!

This Faux fishtail hairstyle is the perfect solution to achieving the perfect braided ‘do! And the best part, like last week’s HAIRSTYLE, this look can be achieved in 5 minutes or less.

What you need 



Step By Step

 1.) Start by tying a ponytail either in the back of your head or on the side, depending on what kind of braided style you are trying to achieve.

2.) Split your hair right above the elastic, and pull the remainder of the ponytail up and through the split section.

3.) Tie another elastic an inch or two down from the first ponytail. Split right above the elastic and pull the remaining ponytail up and through the split section.

4.) Repeat this process down the rest of the ponytail.

5.) Once you have completed the ponytail process, go in and pull at either side of each little section to create a more “lived in” look.

6.) Add a cute accessory to this hairstyle to dress it up.

And there you have it! You will be fooling everyone with this Faux Fishtail, and the best part- it’s in a ponytail so you know this style will last you all night. 😉

XOXO,  Amanda
