Half up Mermaid Braid with bow

Tried something interesting today! This combo looks cute with bow on top and mermaid braid at bottom. It’s been a while I did a mermaid braid. There can be many options for doing mermaid braid, with 3 strand, 4 strand, fishtail, rope braid and so on. Trust me doing this hairstyle on self is little difficult.

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

Time Taken: 10-12 mins

Skill Level: Hard

Hair Length: Medium to long hair

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by brushing your hair and the tie the hair into a half ponytail with an elastic.
  2. After wrapping the elastic around the hair a few times, before it is too tight, take your index finger and thumb through the elastic and pull through your first loop of hair.
  3. Now Divide the loop into half and place it horizontally, by creating the bow & secure it with small bobby pins.
  4. Then take a tiny piece of hair from the center and pull it underneath with a help of hairpin or with the tail (The first style is complete now).
  5. Hairspray the bow to give the finished look.
  6. Now grab the hair underneath the bow & divide the remaining hair into 3 strands.
  7. Begin to braid the regular 3 strand braid, after few stitches add tiny piece of hair from each side. Make sure the every time you add new hair the strand must be tiny to give the mermaid look.
  8. Braid till you reach the ends and secure the braid with elastic.

Happy Braiding..
