I can not believe it’s time for the school again! Time for shopping, school supplies and outfits for the first week!

If you choose what you will wear, you should choose hairstyles while you’re at it! This simple DIY keeps your hair out of your face and complete your back to school look! It is a must for a quick back to school!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step by step instructions:

1. Start by sharing your hair on one side.
2. Cut a piece of hair diagonally backwards from the front. (as shown in the video)
3. Take your remaining hair and secure it out of the way.
4. Pick up a small section from the front of the hair you are working with. Divide in two and start a Dutch fishtail.
5. Make a Dutch fishtail all the way back until you do not have any new hair left. Continue with a normal Dutch fishtail until your braid is long enough to reach the back of the head.
6. Go back and pancake the edges of your fish’s tail and then secure with a small rubber band.
7. Release your hair that has been pulled out of the way. Put on your fishtail and cut it out of the way.
8. Go back to your hair and pick a small section under your fishtail braid. Divide into three parts and start a Dutch braid.
9. After a few stitches, add new hair from the bottom of your braid. (This creates a Dutch “lace” braid).
10. Continue weaving until about the same point where the new hair is tied to the fishtail. At this point, stop adding new hair and continue a regular braid until it is as long as your fish tail trim.
11. Go back and pancake the edges of your braid, then secure with a small rubber band.
12. Pick up both braids, place them around the back of the head on the opposite side and combine them with a small rubber band.
13. Remove your two temporary elastics at the bottom of your braids. Now secure your braids at the back of the head with hair clips.
14. Pick up a section of hair from the front (not braided side) and turn it backwards. Turn and bring it back and up, where your braids are stuck in the back. Secure the end of your turn under your braid to hide pins.
15. Now pick up your remaining hair and divide it into three parts to create a regular three-strand braid. You want to pull it to the side of your braids. After braiding all the way, go back and pancake the edges and secure with a rubber band.
16. Last but not least, carefully pull out a few small pieces in the front (Wispies) to frame your face.
