Learn how to achieve that perfect fishtail braid + turn it into an updo!

Never learned how to fishtail? I’m here to help! This braid is easy as can be and couldn’t look better once it’s finished. I even threw mine up in a quick, cute updo. Take a look at my video and I’ll give you step-by-step instructions!

6 easy steps for the perfect fishtail braid:

  • Apply texture spray to your hair.
  • Divide your hair into two equal sections.
  • Separate a small section of hair from the outer edge and cross it over the opposite side. Repeat this crisscross from the other side.
  • Continue overlapping pieces all of the way down.
  • Tie your braid off with a rubber band.
  • If you’re going for a looser look, piece your braid out by simply pulling sections of your hair.
