The Mermaid Braid

I know that it isn’t summer, but you can feel like an ocean princess any time of the year with this lovely hairstyle! This is my go to look for days that I don’t have a lot of time to fuss over my hair but want to look put together! It’s super cute and when you take it out later, hello volume!

This style is a classic french braid, leading into a fishtail. I have provided a brief description below, along with links to videos on how to french and fishtail braid since it’s hard to describe in words!


1. French Braid- French braid the top half of your head, stop when you reach the base of your neck.

2. Fishtail- Integrate the braid into a fishtail by creating two sections. Take pieces from each section and cross them over to join the opposite section. Continue this process until you reach the end!
