On the days when you seem to no longer have ideas for creative hairstyling, braids can be the best remedies! It’s hard to ever get tired of braided hairstyles, since they always look fun, innovative and feminine, capable of injecting a romantic and innocent touch to your daily and special occasion looks. And we definitely can’t underestimate the beauty and luxury of fishtail braids, which despite their complicated and fab look are extremely easy to style. Today, we suggest incorporating two braided styles into one single chic updo that is sure to make heads turn! Have a nosey at the gorgeous double crown braid tutorial featuring an ordinary French braid and a fishtail one!
To style a double crown braided updo with two styles of braids, you’ll need some elastic bands, bobby pins and a little practice in plating braids. Start on clean hair. Split the hair into two equal parts and curl it with a curling iron to give extra texture to the final look. Now, divide the two parts of the hair into other two halves and start braiding an ordinary French braid above your ear. When you finish braiding it, secure the tail with an elastic band and gently pull the edges for making it bigger and fluffier. Bring the first braid above your head and pin it with some bobby pins. Repeat the same process on the other side of the head.
As you are done with the ordinary French braids, it’s time to be more creative and style fishtail braids. Take the remaining half of your hair from one side of the head and divide it into two equal parts. Take a small strand of hair from the outer side of the right part and cross it to the left side. Afterwards, take a small strand of hair from the outer part of the left part of the hair and bring it to the right side. You have to repeat the same action, until you get the complete fishtail braid. This is a little bit more time-consuming process. As you get your first fishtail braid, repeat the same process on the other remaining half of the hair. When you have both the fishtail braids, gently pull the edges for a more textured look and bring them above your head, securing them in the place with bobby pins.
Your double crown braided updo with French and fishtail braids is done! Wear it to work, to a party or just every day to look more polished and feminine!
