This is a guest post from Tara who wanted to share her Fishtail Braids technique for Isabelle.

***

Hi everyone! Pigtails look so cute on AG Isabelle, but there is the issue of her highlights clips showing when you part it normally. Char posted back in January a pic of Isabelle with her hair in crossover pigtails using the technique from Maxine on My Doll Best Friend. I looked at that post from Maxine and I came up with my own version fishtails pigtails especially for Isabelle.

Brush her hair thoroughly so it is really straight and neat. Part Isabelle’s hair with a little bit of hair on the left side and most of it on the right.

Take a little bit of the pink from underneath from the right side and put it with the left. This is so there is now a little more hair on the left and more pink.

Take some of the blond hair on the right in your hand and put the rest of the right side hair over Isabelle’s right shoulder. Brush the blond section then put it with the left, crossing it over. Then tie off the left pigtail with a hair tie. Then take the right section back over her shoulder, and fishtail braid it. (If you don’t know how to fishtail braid watch this video from Megan or you can put it in a regular pigtail. Or you can regular braid it, but don’t have her hair in the braided pigtails too long, or her hair will become wavy.)

Now take the hair tie out of the left pigtail and brush it. Fishtail braid it.
