How to do a fish tale braid

February 3, 2017

 

 

Time to beak out the coated hair elastics, stretch out your fingers and get ready to unleash your inner hair stylist.

The fish tale braid instructions are easy to understand, and you only have to follow 7 steps.

 

 

 

1.      Divide your hair into a side parting and take the whole length of your hair over to one side.
 

2.      Begin by splitting the hair into two sections. 
 

3.      Take a small piece of hair from the outside of one of the two main sections and bring it to the inside of the opposite section.
 

4.      Then take a small piece of hair from the outside of the other section and bring it to the inside of the opposite section, then pull tight.
 

5.      Keep taking small pieces from each side into the inside of each section to develop the inverted braided pattern. 
 

6.      Keep going until you reach the end and finish by tying the hair with a clear elastic band. 
 

7.      Fishtail braids look best with a slept-in look so tease the braid by pulling out some strands for a more textured look.
