Fluffy Faux Fishtail

Who said that hat hair days had to be bad hair days?! In the wintertime, I’m all about hats! I LOVE a cute newsboy cap or even a fluffy beanie. The #CGHFauxFishtail is a cute and easy hairstyle that’s perfect for the winter (but it can also be worn all year around). Whenever I wear this look, I always get so many questions on how I did it, so today I’m going to show you.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Divide the hair into 2 even sections.
  2. On the first section, grab 2 outside pieces of hair and pull them to the front! Secure with an elastic. TIP: Place the first elastic halfway down your hair about chin level.
  3. Take the hair in the elastic, and flip it inside out over the elastic.
  4. Bring 2 more pieces from the outside to the front and secure with an elastic.
  5. Flip the hair inside out the elastic.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 all the way down the hair.
  7. Secure the ends with an elastic.
  8. Repeat steps 2 through 7 on the other side.
  9. Tweak and fluff. I love to pancake the hair to give it a more boho feel.
  10. Add a cute hat or accessory to take it to the next level.
