Tutorial: How To Create A Fishtail Braid

Hey everyone :)
I have been getting a lot of requests to do hair tutorials, so I thought I would kick off my very first hair tutorial with a fishtail braid. If you want to learn how to create this really fun, easy and cute braid, just keep reading :)

  ♥ 1. Start off by creating a ponytail using a clear elastic. I didn't find one, so I just used a regular black elastic. It doesn't matter what you use, because we are going to cut it when the braid is finished.

  ♥ 2. Split the ponytail into two separate pieces.

  ♥ 3. Take a piece from the first side and pass it to the second side.

  ♥ 4. Then take a piece from the second side and pass back to the first side.

 ♥ 5. When you have finished your braid, go in with your scissors and carefully cut the elastic at the top and that's it :)

Here is the finished look! What do you guys think? I absolutely love this braid, its really beautiful and so easy to do. On days that I don't know what I want to do with my hair, the fishtail braid is perfect. Its such a quick hairstyle, and all you need is a few minutes of your time and a little patience. You might have to practice a few times before your happy with how your braid looks, but practice makes perfect, right? :)
