Medieval Braid Wrapped Braid / / Hair Tutorial

 Hey y'all!  Here's a really fun looking, medieval, braided hairstyle that I did on Gina the other night just for fun.  It's not that hard, but it looks complicated with all the different braids.
 First, do two normal, three-strand braids; one coming from either side of your head.
 Then combine them and split the hair in half, being careful not to let the braids come apart.
 Now, fishtail braid it all the way to the ends, by taking a small strand from the left half and adding it to the right half, then add a small piece from the right to the left, and repeat all the way down.  Tip: the smaller the strand of hair you braid, the more intricate and awesome it will look! :)
 At this point you could just be done, but to make it more amazing, make a tiny braid with the hair from right beside and underneath your original, three-strand, crown braid from earlier. (see picture below)

 Do the same thing on the other side.  For the final step, wrap these two braids around the fishtail braid and fasten off at the ends.
 And voila!  A really complex looking, medieval hairdo.

  1. It does look complicated, glad it isn't as hard to do. I haven't tried that many complex braids- my hair is long and it is quite hard to handle and my arms usually get tired :/ luckily there is always a good person willing to help :). Great tutorial.

    Hope you are all having a great week.
    Blessings,
