Blogger favorite Stephanie of Hair and Make-up by Steph posted an excellent photo tutorial on the fishtail bun. We’re crushing on this look because it sweeps hair away from the face so the attention is all on your visage, but your bun still sits atop your head with an interesting twist. The basic elements of this bun are a pony tail and a fishtail braid. Give your basic top-knot style a relief and try this fun and quirky bun instead. Follow along for our steps to get this look.
Step: Brush your hair back and smooth out any bumps or tangles. Pull your hair into a pony tail.
Step: Braid your pony into a fishtail braid and tie at end with an elastic. For a detailed step-by-step crash course, refer to our guide.
Step: Gently pull pieces of your braid apart to create a looser finish.
Step: Wrap your braid around the base of the pony to create a bun and secure with bobby pins.
