The summer heat means pulling your hair out of your face, but where to put it? In a braid, of course! But, it doesn’t have to be just any old braid this season – you can do a fishtail braid. I love wearing my hair in this style. It is a simple way (really!) to make drab hair fabulous. Once you master the method, you will be able to make fishtail braids quickly and with ease.
Step 1: Divide the hair you want to braid into two equal sections.
Step 2: Start the fishtail braid by holding the right section with your right hand. Then, using your left hand, pick up a small chunk of hair from the outside of the left section and cross it over to the inside of the right section.
Step 3: Repeat on the other side. Hold the left section in your left hand. Use your right hand to pick up a small chunk of hair from the outer right section and cross it over to the inside of the left section.
Step 4: Continue picking up small sections and crossing them over until you reach the ends of your hair.
Step 5: Secure with an elastic and spray the braid with a little shine spray to seal in moisture and boost shine. Now you’re all set!
