Workout Hairstyles: Fishtail Ponytail


A ponytail is a classic workout hairstyle, but a fishtail ponytail is the cutest ponytail trend to rock during your workout. A fishtail braid is easily done by dividing your hair into two even sections. By using two thin strands crossing over your two even sections, you will create a lovely fishtail. Practice your very own fishtail ponytail with our simple tutorial. We all sweat sparkles, so we might as well look good doing it, right ladies?!

How to Start a Fishtail Ponytail

To begin a fishtail ponytail, all you will need is a brush and two elastics. First brush your hair, making sure it is free of all knots. Then, put your hair up in a normal ponytail. Make the height of your ponytail as high or as low as you would like. Once your hair is securely in a ponytail, you will want to start to fishtail your ponytail.
