2. Pull on the edges of the fishtail braid to create volume and to get some extra texture in it. Secure it temporarily with a small elastic.
3. Take a new piece of hair just next to the fishtail braid, divide it in three parts and braid a regular three strand braid.
4. Pull again on the edges of the braid to create volume. Secure with an elastic.
5. Take a piece of hair from the opposite side of the face and gather it together with the two braids in the back. Secure it together with an elastic but don´t pull the hair all the way through the last time, instead let it create a loop.
6. Release the two elastics of the braids then take a piece of hair to cover the elastic with and secure it in place with a bobby pin.
Now you have a simple, fun hairstyle too wear to brunch, happy hour, or anything in between.
