Double Fishtail French Braid Updo Supplies:

Double Fishtail French Braid Updo Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Start by parting the hair where you normally part it; I’ve parted mine slightly off center.
  • Step 2 / Now divide out a section of hair at the crown, smooth it down with a comb, and then twist it together and pin it against the head.
  • Step 3 / Divide the remaining hair into three sections, behind the right ear and then the left ear, and clip these side sections out of the way.
  • Step 4 / With the back section, combine the hair together and tie it off with a clear elastic band.
  • Step 5 / On the last wrap of the elastic only pull the hair part way through to create a loop.
  • Step 6 / Take sections of the loop, bring the hair up against the head, and pin them against the head with bobby pins.
  • Step 7 / Now take the ends that are sticking out under the bun and loop these back towards the elastic tucking them in to form the bottom portion of the bun.
  • Step 8 / With the hair on the right side, create a fishtail french braid.
  • Step 9 / After four stitches of the braid, stop adding in hair to the top portion of the braid and continue adding in hair to the bottom side.
  • Step 10 / Once all of the hair is brought into the braid, lay the braid over the top of the bun and pin it in place by sliding bobby pins into the middle and up towards the right side.
  • Step 11 / Go back over the braid, pulling on the edges to add some texture to it.
  • Step 12 / Then repeat those same steps and create a second braid with the hair on the right side of the head.
  • Step 13 / Once all of the hair is brought into the braid, lay it over the top of the bun and pin it in place by sliding bobby pins into the middle of the braid.
  • Step 14 / With the hair left over from the ends of the braids, drape these over the bun and pin them on the sides to finish off the style.

Scrolling through instagram the other day, I came across a hairstyle similar to this one and instantly fell in love. I couldn’t resist recreating it for a tutorial. I love the texture of the curly hair in the bun and the edgy vibe of the braids. This would be such a fun style for summer especially if you have naturally curly hair. What do you think? Let me know in the comment. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy

Triple Side Braids High Bun Supplies:

Triple Side Braids High Bun Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Begin by dividing out a 1″ section of hair above the left temple, towards the crown of the head, and clip down the outside hair.
  • Step 2 / Pick up a section close to the hairline, divide it into three smaller pieces and cross the side strands under the middle strand for one stitch before bringing new hair into the braid.
  • Step 3 / Cross the left strand under the middle then bring in a section.
  • Step 4 / Now cross the right strand under and bring in a section. The smaller the sections, the easier you’ll be able to see the braid.
  • Step 5 / Continue working, repeating those steps, until all of the hair from this section is added into the braid.
  • Step 6 / Once the braid reaches the back of the head, stop adding in hair, and just braid the section a little further down before sliding a bobby pin over the bottom.
  • Step 7 / Now divide out a new section of hair below the first braid, above the left ear, and clip down the bottom hair.
  • Step 8 / Repeat those same steps and create a second dutch braid with the new section of hair.
  • Step 9 / Now repeat those same steps and create a third dutch braid with a new section behind the left ear.
  • Step 10 / With all three braids done, comb all of the hair into a high ponytail and tie it together with a hair band.
  • Step 11 / Then remove the bobby pins from the ends of the braids.
  • Step 12 / With a 1/2″ curling wand, curl all of the hair in the ponytail wrapping small sections around the wand until it feels warm to the touch before releasing it.
  • Step 13 / Once all of the hair is curled, spread the curls around the hair band and randomly pin them in place to form a bun at the top of the head.
  • Step 14 / Once the bun is all pinned, as an extra step, clip in some barrettes under the right side of the bun.

After so many requests for a tutorial of this hairstyle and I’m excited to finally be sharing it! This hairstyle is so similar to the pull through braid. It’s not extremely difficult but it does take a bit of patience to get all the way through it.

It’s a really fun hairstyle to wear and it’ll be perfect for the Summer months when the weather heats up. It’s literally great for playing sports, hanging out at the beach, camping, working out, you name it. Give it a try, I have no doubt it’s going to become your new favorite hairstyle.

Hey guys! The crown braid has always been one of my favorite hairstyles. It can be worn with every hair texture and (most) lengths, and can even be worn with your hair halfway up. Instead of always wearing it with a french or dutch braid, try it this way with a twist braid.

If you saw this hairstyle on my instagram (@missysueblog) then I’m happy to say I’m finally sharing the tutorial with you today! This is inspired by HairandMakeupbySteph who has always been an inspiration to me. Don’t forget to like and subscribe for new videos! Thanks for stopping by! xo, Missy

I love hearing how my tutorials have taught you different styles and techniques so I hope you take that away from this video as well. Try it out and share it with your friends; I’m sure they’ll love it if you do. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
