Braid Combo with Stacked braid

As you’ll know that braid combo is my favorite lately. Today I did dutch fishtail & 4 strand braid on top then stacked 4 strand braid on fishtail as a side braid. I know it sounds to complex but I’m sure you would love how it looks. I loved how it turned out with these two braids. If you have short or medium length hair, you can also wear dutch fishtail and 4 strand braid on top without side braiding!

This hairstyle would suit best with any kind of the outfit, traditional, western, indo-western. I wore it on the dress! You can wear this hairstyle for wedding, reception, day out, holiday, festivals, parties!
