Heart Shaped Fishtail Braid Bun Hair Tutorial
Start with smooth dry hair.
Secure the hair into a low tight ponytail. Texture can be pulled into the top and sides later.
Create a fishtail braid (refer to fishtail braid tutorial in the video) and secure the end of the braid with a small elastic.
Spray the braid with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hold hairspray, to smooth flyaway and add longevity to the style.
Fold the base of the braid up against the head, securing with a 3 inch hair pin just above the elastic of your ponytail.
Spread the top part of the braid out for width and to emphasize the heart shape. Making sure to keep the end of the braid small.
Fold the fishtail braid flat against the head, tucking the ends under themselves to hide them.
Pin to the head so it is flat as possible, and shape as desired. Try to accentuate the heart shape.
Easy peasy, right? This heart shaped fishtail bun only looks difficult.
