This was one we did a while back for church on Sunday. You don’t need as long of hair as Goose has, but obviously you need to be able to make a French braid as well as a fishbone braid. I think I’ve been on a fishbone braid kick lately!
Step 1 – Make a French braid
If you need help with French braiding, you can watch our French braid video here. Stop adding hair to your French braid once you reach the top of the ear.
Step 2 – Secure with a rubber band
Step 3 – Wrap the rubber band (optional)
To begin with I didn’t wrap it, but decided to go back and cover the rubber band so I back peddled and forgot to take a picture! You can use whatever method you prefer to wrap the rubber band. Watch our ponytail wrap video if you need help!
Step 4 – Make a fishbone braid
If you need help making a fishbone braid, we’ve also got a video for that! You can watch or fishbone braid video here. Start your braid right below your wrapped rubber band.
Step 5 – Secure with a rubber band
Braid as far down as you wish & secure the end with another rubber band.
We turned the ends of her hair under just a little with our flat iron – but you could curl the remaining hair to make it extra fancy!
You could give this a “messier” look by tugging on the French braid and the fishbone to loosen it up a bit. My “messy fishbones” look too messy sometimes I think, so we opted for the “cleaner” look for church. Oh, and I’m linking up at SNAP!
So do you have issues making a French braid or a fishbone braid? Do you find one easier than another!?
