DIY | Double Bubble Fishtail

Double Bubble Fishtail | Cute Girls HairstylesLearn how to create the Double Bubble Fishtail Braid in just a few minutes! It’s so pretty and unique, people will be asking how you did it everywhere you go!

We’ve shown you bubble braid combos, but this tutorial shows a new technique using windows! It’s a totally different look you will love as much as me.Double Bubble Fishtail | Cute Girls HairstylesInspiration from this hairstyle came from one of our Instagram braiding friends, Vlechtidee, from the Netherlands. You can follow her IG account here: Bubble Fishtail | Cute Girls HairstylesDouble Bubble Fishtail | Cute Girls HairstylesWe post a new hairstyle tutorial or Behind the Braids family vlog every Sunday night. Abby and Annie post a guest post hairstyle every Thursday night {7pm CST}!Double Bubble Fishtail | Cute Girls HairstylesTo see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our CGH app, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHDoubleBubbleBraid

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 9 small hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium


Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by sweeping hair over one shoulder.  Divide hair into two even sections.  I like to also pull a few wispy pieces out to frame my face.
  2. Begin a normal fishtail and do about 5-6 fishtail stitches.
  3. Now add a small elastic to each of the two separate sections.  This helps keep them divided which creates the bubble effect.
  4.  Do 5-6 more fishtail stitches.
  5. Add another small elastic onto each of the two sections.
  6. Continue to repeat these steps over and over until you run out of hair.
  7. Secure the last section together with an elastic.
  8. Pancake or stretch the hair to add volume and softness to the overall fishtail.
  9. Loosen the top of the hair near the crown to add volume.
