A Fishtail braid is a nice alternative to a normal braid. It has a much tighter detailed look that is fun to try out for special occasions! Also, it has multiple variations to try out so you'll never be bored of it!

Hair style was done by Sharelle Loudd at Beautique Salon in San Jose, CA. She was awesome enough to demonstrate this technique while we documented the process. Any mistakes are ours.

Step 1: Tie your hair

You can just do this with your hair hanging free, but for another look (or for your first time) tie your hair off in a pony tail holders at the back of your head.

Have done this on my daughters extremely long hair.. (thigh length ) and she was the talk of the schoolyard !

Looks really cool! Makes me a little sad I cut all my hair off. ;-)

Just gotta grab a friend! Jessyratfink and I are going to try to do other hair tutorials soon! So much easier with a friend :) At least then you get to practice the hairstyle and then it is easier to do your own :)
