Simply add a few hair clip wefts to add more length and volume prior to braiding your hair.
Fishtail Crown Braid: Easy & Quick Hairstyle
Brush your hair first, so it doesn’t get tangled easily.
I straightened my hair first by using my GHD straightening iron, so it looks smooth and easier to fishtail braid.
I parted my long black hair into two sections. The parting does not have to be completely perfect unless of course, you prefer the super sleek look. I went for a messy bohemian chic look.
I added two different colors of the clip in hair extensions to achieve a different color once braided. In this hair tutorial, I added a clip wefts of dirty blonde and chocolate brown clip in hair extensions, alternating the two different colors on both sides.
You can start braiding whichever side you prefer. Here, I started on my right section by adding my first dirty blonde clip weft on the top part of my right hair section.
Grab two small separate section of hair pieces from the top. Start fishtail braiding by grabbing a small piece of hair from the bottom on each side and crossing it over to the middle section. Repeat this step until you reach the bottom of your hair.
Grab a small elastic to tie the bottom of your fishtail braid.
Moving to the left sectioned hair. Repeat the same step illustrated on step seven.
This part is entirely optional. Start pulling some strands of hair within the fishtail braid to create a bigger, thicker and volumizing fishtail braid. Please make sure that you pull them slowly starting from the bottom all the way to the top. You can make them bigger, however you like.
Now, it’s the fun part. You should’ve completed your fishtail braids. Lift each section up and place them on top of your head. Placing each braided section like a headband style. I suggest doing it one section at a time. Start pinning by using Bobbi pins to secure it in place. And then repeat the same step with the other braided section.
And finally, you’re done! You can tidy it as you like. However, in this tutorial, I decided to create a messy bohemian chic.
