Braiding Hair - First Step

Make a side part right till your crown. Sweep the rest of your hair to the back. We don’t want the part to continue at the back.

Take a part of your hair at the top and divide it into 3 equal strands.

Start braiding by placing side section on the top of a central section and under an opposite side. As you braid along your hairline, start adding strands from the sides. Be sure you don’t take strands exactly from the back.

Continue it all the way down and don’t forget to add strands from the sides every time before you place sections. When you get to the ear, tie up the braid with a clear hair tie.

Now we will work with the opposite side of the head. Take the rest of your hair and start twisting it away from your face. Swoop the twist around towards the back in order to join the twist and the braid together.


French Braid Into Fishtail

At this point, you should have all of the hair together. Now we turn our French braid into a fishtail. You simply do this by dividing your hair into two sections, and then you take a small section from one side and put it over to the other side. Do the same on the opposite side of the fishtail. When you are done with it, secure your fishtail with a clear hair tie.

As a finishing step, pull out the braid just a little bit to make it looser and add some hairspray to complete it.
