4 Strand Stacked with Fishtail braid

Hello Guys! Today I’ll show you how to do 4 Strand stacked braid with a fishtail braid. I started 4 strand braid above the forehead and braided it till ears and begin to braid regular 4 strand braid till the end. Then with the remaining hair, I started braiding fishtail. Once done with both the braids, I have stacked both of them together.

Combination braids can be fun always! Trust me once you master both the braids you can achieve many different combinations with these two braids.

You can wear this hairstyle for wedding, anniversaries and & birthday parties, festivals, holidays.

You’ll Need: Brush, bobby pins, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Taken: 15 mins

Skill Level: Hard

Hair Length: Medium to Long Hair

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by side parting your hair and grabing the section of hair just beside the parting and divide the hair into 4 equal strands.
  2. Now take the 1st strand (just beside the parting) and cross it over 2nd strand under 3rd strand, 4th strand under 1st strand and over 3rd strand. ( The First stitch of 4 Strand braid is complete now).
  3. Then add new hair(about 1/2 inch) to 1st strand (just next to forehead) and cross it under 2nd strand over 3rd strand, then add new hair (parallel to newly added hair to 1st strand) to 4th strand and cross it over 1st strand and under 3rd strand.
  1. Continue braiding by adding new hair till you reach the ear, then start braiding regular 4 strand braid (without adding new hair) until the end & secure the ends with an elastic.
  2. Now grab the remaining hair onto one side and divide the hair into 2 large sections.
  3. Then pick a tiny strand of hair from left side section, cross it over left strand and add it to right side strand.
  4. Then pick a tiny strand of hair from right side section, cross it over the right strand and add it to left side strand. ( the First stitch of the fishtail is complete now).
  5. Repeat the steps 6-7 till you reach the end of the hair, then start pancaking the hair to give it a fuller effect.
  6. Once you are done with pancaking, secure the ends with elastic.
  7. Now place the 4 strand braid onto the fishtail, secure the ends with an elastic and bobby pin both the braids from inside (Bobby pin the braids such that the pins should not be visible).

Happy Braiding!!
