Fishtail Braid



So beautiful. My hair is almost long enough to braid again.

As soon as it is I am trying this. I used to be really jealous of girls in elementary school that had intricate braids. Fishtail braids always seemed so complex but they sound super easy.

How To:

• Divide the hair you want to braid into two equal sections.
• Start a fishtail braid by holding the right section with your right hand. Then, using your left hand, pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outside of the left section and cross it over to the inside of the right section.
• Repeat on the other side: Hold the left section in your left hand. Use your right hand to pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outer right section and cross it over to the inside of the left section.
• Continue picking up small sections and crossing them over until you reach the ends of your hair.
• Secure with an elastic.

And a video tutorial:
