Crisscross Ponytail

1). Gather a small section of hair from the front. 2). Combine it with a thin section of hair from the back and tie off with a clear elastic band. 3). Take a small section from the opposite side and combine it with another thin section of hair from the back. 4). Using a clear elastic, combine the sections. 5). Repeat until you have four crisscrosses. Leave out two small sections near the nape of your neck, and tie the rest of your hair into a ponytail. 6). Wr...

Fishtail Side Bun A

Fishtail Side Bun

Start by pulling the hair into a side ponytail and Fishtail all the way down. Tie it off with a clear elastic band and then pancake the braid to make it look fuller. Simply wrap your Fishtail toward your face and create an upside down C shape with your braid. Secure with bobby pins as you go, and finish with firm-hold hair spray. ...

Fishtail Bun A

Fishtail Bun

1). Split the hair into two sections. Tie each off with a clear elastic band one inch away from your part. 2). Fishtail one of the tails. 3). Pancake it to make it look fuller. 4). Repeat on the other side, and then hide the part by loosening some of the hair above each ponytail. 5). There are a couple different ways you can finish off this Fishtail Bun. The first way is to wrap the tails in a circular direction. One Fishtail goes over and around the other one, and th...

Half-Up Fishtail A

Half-Up Fishtail

I started this style by curling my hair with a 1-inch curling wand. 1–2). Pull half the hair up into an elastic band. You don’t want to pull all the thickness up, just those very top layers. You can either use a Topsy Tail for this next part or create a hole above the elastic and pull your tail up, over, and through the hole. 3–7). Divide the tail into two sections and begin your Fishtail Braid. You should be familiar with this braid by now but if you need a refresher, head on ...

Elegance Swept to the Side K

Elegance Swept to the Side

You will need to be familiar with the French Fishtail and the Alternative Braid. Please refer to those tutorials for more in-depth instructions. You want fresh falling curls for this style made from the 1-inch wand tutorial. Make sure to tease your hair to add volume and set the hairstyle with firm hold hair spray to finish it off. 1). Gather the section of hair from your ear to the end of your part and secure it with a clear elastic band. Divide the tail into two sections. These two se...

Red-Carpet Style A

Red-Carpet Style

Start this style off with some pretty curls. You can use the 1-inch wand tutorial. If you have extensions, this would be a great style to use them on. 1). Part of the charm behind this style is having the perfect Ariel bangs. To get them, wrap your bangs around two fingers toward your face and secure with duckbill clips. You really want to set those curls so that they don’t fall out toward the end of the night. 2). Pull your hair half up. I’ve used the Simple Half-Up technique whe...

French Fishtail A

French Fishtail

You must be familiar with a regular Fishtail Braid to make any sense out of this tutorial. Once you get that, it’ll be easy peasy! 1). Gather a small section of hair. Where you decide to gather this section is where your Fishtail Braid will start. 2). Split the hair into two sections. 3). Holding both sections in your left hand, section off a small piece of hair from the back of the right section with your right hand. 4). Using your left hand, reach over the right s...

Side Fishtail - Step by Step K

Side Fishtail

The Fishtail Braid is classic. These steps show it on the side, but they apply for any position. I love styling it with messy, textured hair as it gives the braid a nice full look. This is a style that works well on thirdor fourth-day hair! 1). Gather your hair in a low side ponytail and tie it off using a clear elastic. Split the tail into two sections. 2). Using your index finger, split off a small section of hair from the right section. 3). Point your index finger toward ...

Double-Dutch Pigtail Braids - Step by Step A

Double-Dutch Pigtail Braids

This is a great style to do on third- or fourth-day hair and when you have loose waves from leftover curls. 1). Split the hair down the center and clip back one of the sides. I like to keep my regular side part on top and just gradually angle it into the center. 2). Take a rather large triangular section from the front. Mine is from about my temples to the end of my part. Separate it into three sections and begin a Dutch French Braid. 3). Dutch French Braid all the way down...

Princess Braids - Step by Step I

Princess Braids

You are going to create one-sided Dutch Pigtail Braids wrapped in an updo. But instead of adding hair to the top section like you normally would in a Dutch Braid, you are only going to add hair to the bottom section. 1). Braid a Dutch French Braid down to about the tops of your ears. Pay close attention to what my wrist is doing from step one to step two. In a regular Dutch Braid my next step would be to add a section of hair to that top section. 2). Instead, I’m simply twisting my...
