How to Do a Fishtail Braid

Looking to up your hair game? Try a fishtail braid!  No matter your hair type, this unique style is one of the most simple braids to do but it looks super complex!

Prep your hair!

1

I use a dry texturizing spray (affiliate linked here) to help my braid stay in!

Separate your hair into 2 equal sections

2

I like pulling my hair to the side for a side braid but you could also do it down the back of your head too!

Take a small section from one side & cross it over to the opposite side.

3

The smaller the piece the more  intricate the braid. The bigger the piece the quicker you'll be done!

Do the same thing  on the other side!

4

Try to take the same size strand of hair from top to bottom so it has a similar look.

Keep going!

5

Repeat the first 2 steps all the way down your hair.

Loosen it up.

6

Start from the bottom and start tugging on the outside of each loop. Don’t pull out the entire section of hair, just the outer side for a relaxed braid.

Add Your Hair Tie

Add a hair tie at the bottom (the elastic ones I used are affiliate linked here) and get ready to amaze your friends!
