Braid Parade - Fishtail Fiesta

So here's a take on the traditional fishtail braid. If you're just beginning make sure to use a hair tie to start.

Basic Fishtail

  1. Brush your hair to get any kinks out. 
  2. Split your hair into 2 equal parts. 
  3. Take a small section of hair from the left side and cross it over to the right section. Small sections are key to have this braid looking best. 
  4. Then, take a small section of hair from the right side and cross it over to the left side. 
  5. Repeat all the way down your hair and end with a hair tie. 

TIP: If you want your braid to look fuller, gently pull at the sides from top to bottom. Voila - fishtail braid!

If you feel like you have the technique down, start with 3 sections of hair and do 3 separate fishtail braids-don't forget to pull at the sides. Then, braid these together like a basic braid - left over middle, right over left (now middle), repeat.

Now you have reached Boss Level for Fishtail Braiding. Keep following our blog to see where our Parade goes next.
