First, start with your hair down. I like to wear mine in wavy curls, but you can have it straight too. It is totally your preference!

Grab a section of hair on the side of your head that is about 3×3 inches. Split it in half and hold one piece of the section in each of your hands.

Stick your pointer finger through the outside edge of one of the sections and pull it across to the other section. Repeat on the other section and do this back and forth until you have a fishtail braid on that section of hair.

How to do a fishtail braid on

Pancake your braid by gently pulling on the hair. It will loosen the braid and make it look a lot thicker. Put a bobby pin in the bottom to hold it together while you work on the other side.

Repeat all of these steps on the other side of your head.

Pull back both braids and tie them together with an elastic. Pull the ends of the hair back through the elastic over and over again until you have created the messy bun you want.
