We wanted to update our fishtail braid tutorial. This summer, a side fishtail braid that has a messy look matches almost any outfit and feel.
You will need:
- 1 Pony Tail
- 1 Plastic/Rubber Elastic
Step 1: Start off with textured hair. Next day hair works best but you can also apply a hair texturizer. For our assistant, we did a side part and began the braid in the direction of the part.
Step 2: Add the elastic to keep the hair in one place.
Step 3: Split the hair into two sections with hair hands.
Step 4: Grab hair from one side of section 1. To give the fishtail look, grab the hair from the back of section 1.
Step 5: Cross over the hair grabbed in Step 4 to section 2 of your hair.
Step 6 & 7: Repeat but this time you will grab hair from the second section of your hair and cross it over to the first.
Step 8: Continue this process alternating from section 1 to section 2 until you are done. Tie the end of the braid with a ponytail.
Step 9: Cut the elastic carefully with scissors. Make sure to not cut strands of your hair!
Step 10: To add to the tousled look, pull lightly on the fishtail braid from top to bottom.
