Hello! I would say today’s hairstyle is huge one. This braid is actually a stacked braid which is the huge 3 strand braid and a micro fishtail tucked together.

Time Taken: 10-12 mins Skill Level: Medium Hair Length: medium to long hair Steps of Instructions: Begin by brushing your hair away from the face, grab the section of hair from brow to brow deep till crown. Start braiding regular fishtail with it till you reach end of hair. Now grab the rest of the hair and begin with regular 3 strand braid till the end of hair. Pancake the braid to make it look huge. Now place the fishtail on to the 3 strand braid and secure it with pins in between them. Add the headband or any accessory as you can see in photo. Happy Braiding!!
