#37: French and Fishtail Braid Chignon

This exquisite style is based on the fishtail braiding technique, so make sure you’ve got that one down pat before you begin. Part your hair to one side, then start fishtail braiding in a diagonal line across the head, all the way to the nape of your neck. Once you’ve reached your ear, switch directions, but continue with the same style of braiding to the end. Secure the braid with a headband, then twist it around and fasten the bun into place with a few bobby pins.
