  1. i really love the soft dutch braid one. so cool.


  2. My favorite video from Abby’s YouTube channel is the Four Basic Fishtail Styles video. I’ve been doing many different braid styles within the last few months. Fishtails have been a bit of a struggle for me but I like the way Abby explains it and shows you everything. I like all four styles but especially the first three because they all use the original braid you started – you could even switch up the look later in the day without much fuss.
