STEP 1.

Prep hair by applying about a nickel size amount of the Davines Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid to wet or dry hair to eliminate any frizz factor, control the hair, and add some shine. For hair that is coarse, try adding a deeply penetrating oil like our Davines OI Oil.

STEP 2.

Split the hair down the middle using a wide-tooth comb to create two equal sections.

STEP 3.

Clip away the section that you’re not going to be working in order to create a clean section.

On the other side, grab a small section of hair to begin. Divide the section you picked up into 3 equal sub sections. Begin the inverted French braid (Dutch braid) by crossing the two outside strands under the middle strands. After you make your first few stitches, begin adding hair to the outside strands & continue to braid under.

 

STEP 4.

To tame any fly aways or loose strands of hair, apply some of the Aveda Control Paste. Next, continue to braid all the way down until you reach the nape of the neck & tie off your braid with elastic, leaving the remainder of the hair loose.

STEP 5.

Begin an inverted Fishtail braid by splitting your loose hair into two equal sections. Grab a piece from the left strand, cross it under, & merge it with the right strand. Take a piece from the right strand, cross it under again, and merge with the left strand. Continue this process down to the ends of your hair. Simply tie the end with elastic and lightly spray the Aveda Control Force Hairspray to hold any fly aways.

We love the way this looks paired with any outfit. We especially love that it’s another great hair style to help get your hair out of your face & off your neck while still looking polished.

Next, let’s see if you can transform your double braid into a triple braid.

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

Messy-Fishtail-Braid-Hairstyle

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.
