  • 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.

Quick and easy, half-up updos, such as this, can be done on every hair texture,  whether your hair is curly, straight, kinky, thin, coarse, with layers, or without..

I usually wear my own straight, Asian hair curly, because I like big, voluminous curls, and romantic hairstyles. 

  However, twisted-flip, half-updos will look just as chic on pin-straight hair.  I know, because I’ve worn it both ways.


Twisted-flip, half-up hairstyles will work just as well for a formal occasion; prom, homecoming, a fancy party, or even as a wedding/bridal hairstyle.
