In case you haven’t noticed yet, the low bun hairstyles with a touch of fishtail braid have been spotted everywhere for the past few months – beauty blogs, Instagram pictures, Pinterest pins, and even on those glamorous red carpet events. If you want to achieve the ever famous look, then this tutorial will guide you throughout the way.
Step 1: Grab a small section from the front, gently twist it around and pull it to the side. Divide this part into two equal sections. Use your fingers to separate a small section of your hair from the outer edge, and cross it over to the opposite side. Continue overlapping pieces from both sides of your ponytail.
Step 2: Once you have reached the ends, secure the fishtail braid with another elastic band. Gently pull out some strands and stretch out the braid for an effortless look.
Step 3: Now gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail and secure it in place.
Step 4: On your final twist of the elastic, pull hair only partially through the elastic to form a loop.
Step 5: Take small sections from the loop and bring them up towards the head.
Step 6: Pin the section against the head to hold it in place. You can easily continue bringing up small sections until you are satisfied with the final result.
Step 7: Take the tail from the ponytail and loop it up underneath the top pinned portion. This should create the bottom part of the low bun.
Step 8: Use bobby pins to secure it in place. Finish with some hairspray and you are ready to go out and show off your new gorgeous hairstyle! Remember to use the right makeup and clothing to achieve maximum effect! Now all you need to do is sit back and wait for the compliments to roll in!
