An inverted fishtail headband braid is the upside down version of a regular fishtail braid. With the braid starting at the part and trailing across the forehead, it creates a gorgeous headband style. I love this braid for the upcoming holidays and think it would be absolutely perfect for a holiday party or family gathering. Dress it up with a gorgeous clip and you are ready to go! This one seen here is from Ulta.

Inverted Fishtail Headband Braid Steps:
Step 1 / Begin with a part on the right side.
Step 2 / Next, separate out a section of hair from the part down to the left ear.
Step 3 / Clip off the back portion with an alligator clip.
Step 4 / Next, pick up a section of hair on the heavy side of the part and divide it into two halves.
Step 5 / Take a small piece from the back section, cross it under the strand, and add it into the other half.
Step 6 / Then, take a small piece from the front section, crossing it under the strand and adding it into the other section.
Step 7 / Now cross a small piece underneath from the back section but also bring in a section of hair and cross it under as well, adding it into the opposite side.
Step 8 / Then cross a strand from the front portion underneath and to the other side and pick up section of hair, crossing it under as well.
Step 9 / Continue braiding, repeating steps 7 and 8 until all the hair is brought in.
Step 10 / Now finish braiding the hair down into a regular fishtail braid.
Step 11 / Gently loosen the braid by pulling on the edges; this creates a fuller more voluminous braid.
Step 12 / Tie off the end with a clear elastic band.
Step 13 / Let down the back portion that was clipped away.
Step 14 / Wrap the braid around the back of the head.
Step 15 / Grab a clip and secure it in place.
