The Fishtail Braided Bun for Hot Summer Days

Great for casual wear on hot summer days, this low, braided bun will get your hair up and out of the way in no time. If you know how to fishtail braid, you can do this easy updo.


Whether you're rocking this braided bun with denim shorts and a T-shirt or with a summer dress, this is the easy updo you've been waiting for. Of course, fishtail braids take more time than a typical three-strand braid, but the beautiful, intricate-looking result is worth the extra work. Sorry, short-haired ladies, this style works better on longer hair, but all textures work well.

1. Make two fishtail braids at the nape of the neck.

2. Pull on the sides gently to achieve a little more volume.
