#1 The Twisted Fishtail Braid

In this hairstyle Elanna clips the extensions in vertically instead of horizontally in order to avoid the wefts being seen when you pull your hair back for the braid.

1. Take the pieces of your hair from both sides of your face and secure them in the back with a small clear elastic creating a mini ponytail.

2. Take the mini ponytail and flip it through the middle, creating a pretty twist. 

3. Grab two sections of hair a bit lower than your twist and repeat the last two steps, creating another twist.

4. Create a fishtail braid with the end pieces of your twist ponytail and secure with another elastic.

1. Take some hair at the top and separate it into three equal sections left, middle and right.

2. Take the left section, cross it over the middle one and combine it with the right section.

3. Take the right section, cross it over the middle and combine it with the left section.

4. And again, take the left section and cross it over the middle one, combining it with the right section. And you’ve mastered the technique! It may seem a tad confusing at first but with lots of practice, you’ll become a French braiding guru. Add more hair from the right, cross it over the middle. Add more hair from the left, cross it over the middle – so easy!! Continue this pattern all the way down.

A helpful tip would be to get a mirror to check the back from time to time.

5. Once you reach the nape of your neck, bring your hair to one side and finish off with a three strand braid.

6. OPTIONAL – Take a small piece of hair from the tail of your french braid and wrap it around your hair tie to create a clean look, secure with a bobby pin behind the ponytail. 

#9 The Double Dutch Braid

5. Secure with a hair tie.

6. Repeat with the opposite side.
