Double Fishtail Half Up

Hello girls! This hairstyle is definitely for the fishtail lovers. I’m sure many of you might know how to do a regular fishtail braid. Here I did double fishtail braid half up. I started off with side parting and began to braid dutch fishtails. Continue to braid till the end of the hair. At this point you need to merge both the braid at the back of the head, taking a chunk of hair from the other side of parting as well and secure it with elastic.

You can wear this hairstyle at holidays, housewarming, puja, festivals, concerts, sangeet, mehandi and so on.
