Fishtail Braid Woven Pigtails

Back To School Hairstyles

Today we're doing another request. One of our fans on facebook (Lauren) sent in a picture of these cute woven looking pigtails wanting to know if we could make a video showing how to recreate the style. I'm not going to post the original picture that she sent in, because I'm not sure where it came from (or who's child is in the photo.) We've actually done this hairstyle before, but never posted it on our blog and had forgotten about it. So I was super excited to see it again and add another back to school hairstyle to our collection. ;)

I'm thinking this would be a great school day style, as it only takes a couple of minutes to complete and looks so cute besides!

If you know how to do a basic fishtail braid, this should be easy for you!
