Hey everyone, I'm Jordan from Braids By Jordan, and today, I'm going to be showing you how to do a stacked braid updo. If you haven't already comment to Hairstyles, make sure to hit the comment button and give this post a big thumbs up. So, let's get started. For this style, I started off with my hair parted to one side and then took a section of hair from the heavy side and moved it out of the way.

Take a section of hair from the front of the head and divide it into two equal pieces. Take a small piece of hair from the outside of the top piece and cross it under and add into the inside to the bottom piece. Then, repeat that with the bottom section, so take a small piece of hair from the outside of the bottom piece and cross it under and into the inside of the top piece.
And we're going to repeat that again, except this time we're gonna add in a small new section of hair. So, take a small piece from the outside of the top piece, add in a small section of new hair, and cross them both under and into the inside of the bottom piece. Then, repeat those steps with the bottom piece, so take a small piece from the outside of the bottom piece, add in a small new section of hair, and cross them both under and into the inside of the top piece.
Then, repeat those steps to create a dutch fishtail braid. Every so often, go back and pancake the braid by pulling gently on the edges to give the braid more volume. Once the braid reaches the ear, stop adding in new hair and continue a regular fishtail braid for a few extra stitches.
Secure the braid with a clear baby elastic. Take the section of hair we left out at the beginning and divide it into three equal pieces to start a regular three-strand braid. Braid it all the way down and then secure the end of the braid with a clear baby elastic.
Then, I went back and gently stretched out the braid with my fingers. Then, pull the remaining hair into a side ponytail, including only the fishtail braid. Remove the extra elastic from the fishtail braid and go back and adjust the pancaking if needed.
Take the braid and pin it along the center of the fishtail. Secure the braid to the ponytail with a clear baby elastic and then remove the extra elastic from the braid. Take a small elastic and wrap it halfway around the ponytail to make a loop.
Take a section from the top of the loop and pull it to one side and secure it with bobby pins. I like to cross two bobby pins to keep it secure. Then, take a section from below the first one and pull it to the opposite side and then secure it with bobby pins.
Then, take the bottom piece from the loop and pull it back to the same side as the first one and secure it with bobby pins. Adjust any of the pieces with bobby pins if necessary. Take the remaining hair and split it into two.
Take one of the sections and twist it up and around the bun. Pull on the edges of the twist to give it more volume and then secure it to the bun with bobby pins. Repeat with the remaining section and wrap it around in the opposite direction.
