  • Tie your hair in a side ponytail.
  • Split your ponytail in 2 – as if you’re doing a normal fishtail braid.  We’ll name it Section A & Section B. Take a “thin strand” of hair from the outside of the Section  A, and cross it OVER the Section A, but UNDER the Section B (use your thumb to wrap the hair under the Section B).
  • Create an opening where the thin strand passed under the Section B, and insert 2 fingers through it so you can grab the “thin strand” of hair and pull it through.  This will create a knot.
  • Once it’s been knotted, return the “thin strand” back to the original section.  In this case, it should be placed in Section A again.
  • Repeat on the opposite section.
  • Rinse and repeat all the way down and tie it with an elastic band.

Please note, because this braiding method requires “knotting” this will make your hair slightly shorter than a normal fishtail braid.   You’re giving up “some length for thickness.

Your choice; long, thin as pancakes but cute, fishtail braids, or slightly shorter, but lush and full fishtail braids.

Don’t be fooled by the flowers in this updo, when worn without them, this cute, long hairstyle will look utterly boho chic and glam with some comfy, skinny jeans.
The effect I was trying to achieve with this hair style is a messy, faux-waterfall braid with a French braid technique.  And when you watch my hair tutorial video, you’ll understand where I was going with this look.
 For this hairstyle, I decided to incorporate 1 thick hair extension piece from the Irresistible Me (discount code at the bottom of this blog for my readers), to add thickness and glamor, and then curled my hair with a 1″ curling iron to create soft, loose curls.
