How To Do A Fishtail Braid

Have you always wanted to try the ethereal fishtail braid for yourself? Here’s how in FOUR EASY STEPS.

HOW TO DO A FISHTAIL BRAID

Although this braid might look intimidating at first, it’s not too difficult to achieve once you get the hang of the motions. Plus, other than a hair tie, there are no tools or products necessary to recreate this look. It’s time to unleash your inner hair stylist – follow the steps below and you’ll have a perfectly messy & beautiful hair style.

Fishtail Braid Chic

STEP ONE:

Separate your hair into two sections. Unlike your typical braid, a fishtail braid only requires your hair to be parted in two.

STEP TWO:

Using your fingers, separate a small section of your hair from the outer edge of the first section and cross it over the second section – this should overlap the same way you would do it if you were doing a standard braid. Get a good grip on the hair and tighten the plait, still keeping the two sections separate.How To Do A Fishtail Braid

 STEP THREE:

                                                          Continue to overlap small pieces from each section until you reach the ends. Try to keep the pieces that you’re overlapping with the same size for a consistent looking finished braid – you generally want to keep the sections to a half-inch.

Bonus Tip: You can make the sections larger for a bigger looking braid – this is especially great for messy braids (as pictured above).

STEP FOUR:

Once you’ve reached the ends of your hair, secure the braid with an elastic. Finish the look by gently tugging at the outside pieces of the braid with your fingers to loosen it for that effortless appearance.

Of course if you’re a beginner and new to braiding or you learn better by watching rather than reading, definitely utilize Youtube for some easy to follow hair tutorials.
