I personally like to wear hats when I style my hair this way, but my absolute favorite thing about this look is that you can dress it up or down. It all just depends on what accessories you choose! You can choose a beanie or newsboy cap like I did, or you can use a baseball cap to dress it down,

Fluffy Faux #FishtailBraids #Hairstyle #Tutorial:

Step 1: Separate the hair into 2 sections.

Step 2: On the 1st section, bring 2 pieces from the outside to the front, secure with an elastic.

Step 3: Flip the hair inside out over the elastic.

Step 4: Bring 2 more small pieces from the outside to the front, and secure with elastic.

Step 5: Flip the hair inside out over the elastic, and repeat all the way down the hair.

Step 6: When you reach the end of the hair, secure all of the ends together with another elastic.

Step 7: Tweak & Fluff! You can leave the hair tighter for a more polished look, or fluff it out to make it a little bit more casual.

Step 8: Accessorize! Throwing on a hat takes this look to the next level.
