How to create a Fishtail braid (diy video)


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.
