Fishtail braids are quite stylish these days. When I see them, I think they look pretty simple to do…if I could only see the technique done at least once. Well, I finally saw it! And of course, I’m going to share the “ how-to” with you!
First, prep your hair: Apply a smoothing balm like
BioSilk Smoothing Balm to clean hair and blow dry. For best results, follow with
It’s a 10 Miracle Styling Serum and flat iron your hair.
Start Braiding: Divide into 2 sections like a regular braid
You should also keep your hair in two separate sections throughout.
Grab a small amount from the outside edge of one side (lets say the left side) and cross it over to the other (right) side.
Next grab a small amount from the outside edge of the other side (right) and cross it over to the (left) side.
Continue alternating sides and doing the same thing until you reach the ends.
When grabbing pieces of hair from the outside edge, make sure the pieces are small. Otherwise, using big chunks of hair will just look like a regular braid.
Once you’ve reached the ends of your hair, secure the braid with a hair tie.
Then, lightly tug at the two sides of the set braid to slightly loosen.
