Double Waterfall Braids and Fishtail Bun

Double Waterfall Braids and Fishtail Bun is the fancy, updo‘s version of Double Headband Waterfall Braid.

The first time I pulled this look together I finished with a regular donut bun but it didn’t do the trick for me. I had to dress it up a little bit more so I braided the hair into fishtail braid before wrapping them into a more elegant low bun.

I also snuck in two braids on the other side so it wasn’t a blank slate and really love how the looked came together.

It may seem a little tricky but with a little practice it’ll be as easy as any other braid.
