How to create a Fishtail braid


By Clare

As it is Holy Thursday today I thought I would post one more hairstyle before Easter.

“While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘take, eat; this is my body. Then He took a cup,and after giving thanks He gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.‘ ” Matt 26.14

So today I wanted to show you 2 different ways that you can wear a fishtail braid, I really like how with a fishtail braid you make it look so different by just adding bigger/smaller sections into the braid. It is also very easy to do, in fact if you know how to do a normal 3 strand plait you can definitely do this one.

Items Needed: Brush,  comb, spray bottle, 1 hair band, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes

Skill Level: easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by combing all the hair into a high ponytail or desired location of the braid and secure with a hair band {I sprayed the hair with water first, to make the hair neater}…
  2. Separate the hair into two equal sections…
  3. Next take a small sliver of hair from the outside edge of the right section, and take it over the rest of that same section and combine it into the left section {in a reverse fishtail braid, you would go under the section of hair, and not over}…
  4. Now take a small sliver of hair from the outside edge of the left section, and take it over the rest of that section, and combine it into the right section {simply the opposite of Step #3}…
  5. Continue Steps 3 & 4 over and over again until you run out of hair…
  6. When you get to the end of your braid, secure it with a hair elastic.

Hairstyles for Easter


By Clare

If you are like me I am always looking for new hairstyles for special occasions. So in the next week or so, I will post some hairstyles for Easter!

Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, 2-3 small hair elastics.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by parting the hair in the middle…
  2. Grab a medium-sized section of hair starting at the part line …
  3. Begin a simple 3-strand plait, only make one of the strands a lot thinner than the other two, {as you braid, you’ll notice a different look to the braid, which is fine}…
  4. Continue braiding the hair, until you reach the ends……
  5.  Secure with an elastic …
  6. Now, go back and gently pull a little bit the on the of the larger strands to loosen up the braid…
  7. Next, go to the other side of the head and repeat steps 2-6…
  8. Secure both braids at the back of the head with a small elastic…
  9. And your done!

If I get up to 5 comments on this post I will possibly film a video tutorial on the next hairstyle, so please leave a comment below letting me know what you think of this hairstyle.

Adventures in Odyssey


“Since 1987, Adventures in Odyssey has presented exciting entertainment that brings moral and biblical principles to life. The show’s memorable characters and situations are designed to ignite the imaginations of kids.

The adventures often start with grandfatherly Mr. Whittaker (“Whit”), who runs an ice cream shop called Whit’s End. Young friends from all over town come to Whit for advice, and his employees (perky Connie Kendall and genius Eugene Meltsner) often learn as much as the kids!”  via whitsend.org

Some episodes are available to listen to online at (http://www.whitsend.org/radio) which I would definitely recommend .

St Patrick’s day is coming up soon and Adventures in Odyssey have a two part episode about Saint Patrick which is done very well, and is available to purchase here: (http://www.whitsend.org/albums/31-days-to-remember/394-saint-patrick-a-heart-a-fire-1-of-2.aspx)
