For days when you’re feeling a little rebellious, we recommend this creative and unique updo. Learn how to create it below!
Step 1: To start of this look, you need to section a piece of your hair at the front and clip it away for later. This piece will be used to create a teased pompadour.
Step 2: Section the rest of your hair into four pieces, and from the each piece create a ponytail. Secure with an elastic.
Step 3: Create a loose fishtail braid from each ponytail. Your braids should be messy and full. Secure them with an elastic, as well.
Step 4: After you’ve created all your fishtail braids, take the front section and tease it at the roots (just for a little bit of lift). Create a fishtail braid from the front section, too.
Step 5: Now it’s time to create a faux hawk shape! Pin every braid in the center of the hair.
Step 6: Finish the look by smoothing the sides with a hair spray.
