The Stacked Topsy Tail Braid Hair Tutorial


We had Melissa Cook from Latest-Hairstyles.com to show us step by step how to do a stacked topsy tail braid.This “braid” is the perfect way to change up your typical French braid because it looks so intricate and detailed. The best part is that it isn’t actually a braid at all! This style is made by creating a bunch of topsy tails stacked on top of one another. The final look is created by gently pulling everything loose to create voluminous, romantic twists that are perfect for any occasion."
