Messy Fishtail Braid Buns Tutorial


Hi guys!

I hope you’ve all had  good Sunday and a good Mother’s Day! We’ve had a great day in my house for Mother’s Day , Jess and I (mostly Jess, my cooking skills are rather limited) cooked a nice brunch and we went to the cinema this afternoon to see ‘Hail, Caesar!’ which was actually really enjoyable!

So today I’m sharing a hair tutorial with you! I haven’t shared one of these in ages but hopefully I’ll start to get more up! Today’s one is messy fishtail braid buns, I love braids and buns so this is definitely one of my favourites and is actually super easy and quick to do, so here it is!


1.First put your hair in two low pigtails just behind your ears.


2.Next you need to braid each pigtail into a loose fishtail style, this is done by splitting the section of hair in half, and pulling a smaller amount of hair from the outside of the right section over the top of the hair and into the inside of the left section, keep doing this until you run out of hair.

3.Once your hair is braided you need to thicken it out slightly, you can do this by simply pulling the each side of the braid outwards, this helps to make it a bit messier, with this style the messier the better!


4.The last part of this style is to wrap it round your hairband pinning the braid in random places; if you want it to look a bit messier, once you’ve pinned it you can pull some parts of the braid out further, give it a spritz with some hairspray and you’re done!

So there is my messy fishtail bun look! If any of you have requests for tutorials please let me know as I’d love to hear them! Comments and feedback welcome.
