Fishtail Braid Tutorial

  • Step 1:

Clip in your BG hair extensions to create extra length and volume which will enhance the look of your fishtail braid.  Make sure you clip these in quite high (let’s say in line with your ears) so the wefts don’t get in the way when you are sectioning your hair into two.

  • Step 2:

Bring all of your hair around to one side; it’s completely up to you which side you choose. Most people tend to bring their hair around to the same side as their fringe is on, if you haven’t got a fringe then you have two options to decide from.

  • Step 3:

Once you have decided on which side you would like to create your fishtail braid, you need to split your hair into two equal sections. We’re going to call these sections A and B which you can see in the pics.

  • Step 4:

So, once you have your two sections you will be holding section A in one hand and section B in the other. You will need to take a smaller section from section A, we’re going to call this little section, C. Then you’re going to bring it over section A and place it under section B. You can then add section C into your section B.

  • Step 5:

You then need to take a small section from section B, we will call this section D. Take section D over section B and under section A. Section D can then merge into section A.
Repeat steps four and five; alternating between section A and B, and adding sections C and D to as far down your hair as you’d like to go.

  • Step 6:

Secure any fly-aways/shorter layers, which are falling out, with some bobby pins or you could leave them down for a messy boho look.  Pull gently at each side of the fishtail braid to help it appear a little thicker and voila! You have on-trend hair in a matter of minutes.

P.S. Don’t forget to spritz over with hairspray to help hold your lovely hairdo! ♥
