The ladies at Southern Belle Beauty keep us updated on the latest hair ideas, and today's DIY hairstyle doesn't disappoint! Learn how to dress up your average fishtail braid with a little ribbon! I love this idea. You can choose a ribbon that matches your outfit or even choose a variety of widths and textures if you're wanting something really unique. Thank you to Red Boat Photography and Dara's Garden for teaming up to create this tutorial for The Bride Link!

Step 1:  Separate the hair into a top and bottom section clipping the upper portion to the top of the head.

Step 2: Next, create a row of three ponytails horizontally across the head.

Step 3: Tie ribbon around each ponytail. Make sure to tie the ribbon at the halfway point of the ribbon creating two strands of ribbon per ponytail.  Notice the length of ribbon falls longer on one side of the head than the other. It should look like  a stair step with the longest ribbon near the shoulder over which you will create the braid. See the photo below.

Step 5: Let down the top portion of hair. Smooth it over the ponytails and pull it all to the side preparing for the braid. Separate the hair into two strands making sure the ribbon is evenly separated within the two strands.

Step 6: Begin braiding the hair (here’s a tutorial for a fishtail braid,) and tie it off with a hair band. Tie a strand of ribbon around the hair band to hide it. Gently tug at the braid to loosen it revealing more of the ribbon.  Use scissors to trim any remaining ribbon.
