I’ve seen this stacked fishtail and mini braid combo everywhere! Since it’s always in the back of my mind, I thought it would be fun to tell how I would style it. Headband braids are such a great way to add a little extra to your favorite curls or waves. For that look, I’ve decided to iron my irons and really love how easily it has disguised my straight locks. This type of braid would also easily turn into a handful of other hairstyles. If there is another version you would like to see in a tutorial, please let me know in the comment section!

Stacked Fishtail and Mini Braid Instructions:
For this hairstyle, I started brushing through clean hair before running a hair straightener over my hair to smooth out any natural waves.
- Step 1 / Start by parting the hair on the right side. Then divide a small section on the heavy side of the part, about 1 “back from the hairline, and braid this section into a 3% pigtail braid.
- Step 2 / Cross two bobby pins over the end of the braid and clip it out of the way.
- Step 3 / Take a 2 “section of the hair just below the previous one and make a half inch” fish tail “braid. Continue the hair until they reach the temple. Then continue the braid to the end.
- Step 4 / Go back through the mesh and pull the edges to make it wider and fuller.
- Step 5 / Wrap the braid around the back of the head. Divide a small section of hair under the top hair of the crown. Tie the braid to this small section with an elastic band.
- Step 6 / Lower the original three-strand braid and place it over the middle of the fish’s tail.
- Step 7 / Put the mini plait where the fishtail ends. Lay the hair from the crown over the ends to hide it.
- Step 8 / Spray the style with hair spray to set it. Smooth the sides of the braid to clear all overflights.
