Fishtail braid tutorial

Here is another short little video from my youtube channel on how to do one of my favorite braids! I am just starting to get into this whole videoing thing, and although it took me like way longer than I would like to admit to get this video to work, it’s up… So watch it and let me know what you think :) A few years ago I couldn’t do a fishtail braid on my own hair, and then I figured out a little trick that made it soo much easier. The trick is to not look in the mirror! It sounds so goofy but when you are first learning to do it I found that it was easier to do it by feel rather than your reflection.

Start by splitting your hair into two sections. From this you will take a small piece from the outside of the right side and cross it over to join the left side. Then you take a piece from the outside of the left and join it to the right. You continue alternating until you are all the way to the bottom. The smaller the pieces the more intricate it will look, and the bigger the more messy. Once you are done, secure with an elastic. If you want to pull it apart (which I do to my fishtails everytime.. sometimes too much to the point where they are falling apart), it is easiest to pull from the inner part of the braid. They say to start from the top of your braid, but when your hair is as long as mine you have to loosen the bottom first.

Hope you enjoyed!
