Tips and tricks:
- Use hair product to help prevent flyaways while you are creating the fishtail and for the finishing touches.
- Stretch the edges of your braid for a more voluminous final look.
- Miniature bobby pins (affiliate) are easier to hide in styles like this.
- You may want to loosen the hair at the crown of her head before you wrap up the braid for a softer and more effortless look.
