French Fish Tail Bun:
Step 1 – Brush your hair back to remove any knots.

Step 2 – Make a short part on the right side and take a section of hair to begin your braid.

Step 3 – Make a French fishtail braid from the top right to the bottom left of your hair. French fishtail braids use
the same technique as a regular fishtail but you add in extra hair from each side as you braid. Pick up a small section of hair from the left and cross it into your right hand. Pick up a small section of hair on your right side and cross it over into your left hand. Repeat this as your braid diagonally down your head.

Step 4 – When your braid reaches behind your left ear, start to curve it around and braid along your lower hairline. Continue into a regular side fishtail braid until all your hair is braided. Secure the end with a rubber band.

Step 5 – Twist the braid up and around into a spiral bun. Pin in place with bobby pins.

Waterfall Braid:
Step 1 – Brush hair. Before braiding, brush hair to smooth out any knots or tangles.

Step 2 – Gather hair at top of head; divide into three sections.

Step 3 – Cross the sections.

Step 4 – Add hair to the section.

Step 5 – Add hair to the section on the other side.

Step 6 – Repeat adding hair and crossing sections.

Step 7 – Secure the braid at the end with a band.
