With the summer heat still on high lately, I have been wanting to try a few new hairstyles that can keep my hair out of my face without sacrificing style. Looking through all my inspiration, I found so many fun braids from summer festival photos I’ve collected this season and thought it would be the perfect tutorial. I have partnered with the lovely team at U by Kotex to share a really great offer. When you buy U by Kotex at Target and text ‘KOTEX’ to ‘TARGET’, you receive a coupon for free Goody hair elastics. Both products are so essential in my life, and I always have a couple of each in my bag and car at all times. See how I used Goody hair elastics to create a braided headband with fishtail, a fun and easy-to-do style that I know I will be re-creating constantly! Hope you enjoy!
 • Goody Hair Elastics
 • Comb
 • Clear elastics
 • Hair Clips (optional to manage hair while braiding)
 • Mirror

1. With a comb, create a side part for a more dramatic braided headband.
2. Take a small chuck of hair towards the front of head, near the part. Separate into 3 equal sections.
3. Braid once.
4. Then, near the forehead grab another small section of hair.
5. Take the small section of hair and combine it with the right section of hair from Step 3, and braid once. This creates the first French braid of the headband.
6. Continue French braiding around your head, until it nears your ear. Then, finish off with a regular braid for the remainder of the hair. Hold the end of this braid with a small clear elastic.
7. For the rest of the unbraided hair, I created a fishtail. First, separate the hair into two equal sections. 8. Grab a small amount of hair from the left section and bring over to the right section.
9. Grab a small amount of hair from the right section and bring it over to the left section. This creates the first fishtail braid. After the first fishtail braid, incorporate the braid from Step 6 into your right section of hair so it seamlessly blends into your fishtail braid. You can remove the clear elastic band from that braid when it is evenly incorporated.
10. Continue the fishtail braid throughout the rest of your hair, and tie with a Goody hair elastic. I chose pink for a pop of color!

Cool braid!! I definitely have to try this! In the summer, I usualy start the same way, but then go around the back of my head into a sidebraid.
