How-To Video: A Feminine Updo with Fishtail Braids

This week, Ruth shares an unstructured feminine updo she creates with a ponytail, 2 fishtail braids and some backcombing. It has undone textured volume at the crown and the fishtail braids are pinned to the back of the head to create a cool pattern that’s very pretty, yet still looks somewhat effortless.
