Hey everyone. I'm Jordan from Braids by Jordan and today I'm back on CGH to show you a cute half-up button style with braided accents. If you haven't already comment to Hairstyles, make sure to hit the comment button and give this post a huge thumbs up. So let's get started on the hairstyle.
Take about a one-inch section of hair from the heavy side of the part and divide it into two equal pieces to start an inverse fishtail braid.

To do an inverse fishtail, take a small piece from the back section and cross it under into the front section. Then take a small piece from the front section and cross it under into the back section.
Continue that pattern until the fishtail braid is long enough to reach the back of the head. Every so often, I like to go back and pancake the braid by pulling gently on the edges. Once the braid is long enough, secure it with the clear baby elastic.
Move the fishtail out of the way and comb half of the hair into a ponytail. Add the fishtail into the rest of the hair and secure it into a pony with the clear baby elastic. Remove the elastic from the end of the fishtail if it's sticking out and gently comb through the pony.
Take another baby elastic and wrap it around the ponytail to make one loop. Take the ends of the loop and twist them around the elastic to hide it.
Pin as you go to keep it secure.
Adjust the bun with pins if necessary. Take a section of hair between the ear and the bun and braid a regular three-strand braid. Tug up the edges to give it more volume.
At the end of the hair, secure the braid with the clear baby elastic and then repeat on the other side. And that's it. I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial, and if you did make sure to give it a thumbs up.
