Fishtail Braid

How to style a fishtail braid?
  • To start with, ensure that your hair is absolutely dry. Prep your hair and comb it well, such that there are no tangles at all.
  • Partition your hair into two equal sections.
  • Considering you are not a leftie, pull out a thin strand of hair from the outer part of the right section and tuck it along-with the hairs on the left section. You can also choose to go from left-to-right, doesn’t make a difference really.
  • Many might be wondering why section out thin strands of hair and not thicker strands, especially when it cuts-down the work by half? Well, for a beautiful and intricate fish tail braid, it is best suggested to pick styling with thin strands of hair.
  • Keep repeating the process of alternating strands of hair from one section to another until a gorgeous fishtail is created.

That’s it. Did you still feel that making a fishtail braid is overly complicated? Infact, you can easily modify the braid with almost no effort. While sticking to a tight fishtail braid can work wonders for a serious professional look, pulling out the sections and making it a bit messy can give you that glam-sham, funky and sexy appeal you were long craving for.

No major hair-care products or sprays are required to do this hairstyle. However, if you haven’t mastered the trick of doing a proper fishtail braid and yet wish to have the most perfect and neatest braid of all, try using some nice and long-lasting hair spray to help keep the strands restored.
