Fishtail Bun

A high bun is definitely my go-to hairstyle when I have dirty hair, so I'm always looking for new ways to dress it up. This is one of my new favorite ways!

Fishtail Bun

Fishtail Bun Steps 1 - 2
Start by putting your hair into a high ponytail.
This is about where I like my bun to sit. You can do it higher or lower if you'd like.

Fishtail Bun Steps 3 - 4
Use the hair in the ponytail to do a fishtail braid. For help with fishtail braiding, see my video for instructions.
Secure the end of the braid with a small elastic. Use your fingers to loosen and widen the braid.

Fishtail Bun Steps 5 - 6
Wrap the fishtail braid around the base of the ponytail.
Tuck the end of the braid under the bun and secure the bun with bobby pins.
