Fishtail Plait- Why can't you have a prettier name?

Hey there Mr Tuesday. I hope you are well.

Hows it going!? Today I am showing you my Fishtail plait tutorial! Easy peasy. I always have people asking me if I can show them how or if I can do it in their hair for them... I even once remember going round my entire art class fishtailing everyone hoorah hoorah! I find this tutorial works best if your hair is not freshly washed as it has a tendency to just slip out. Plus the longer your layers the better!


So all it is is overlapping small sections of hair from one side to the other. The smaller the sections the more intricate the braid will look. Once you have pulled a small section from one side over to the other hold the entire side with one hand while you select the next section. You only need to hold one side at a time as holding that side keeps the other in place! Far easier than it looks or sounds!

My advice is... Just keep practicing! Hope this goes well for you all!
Happy Tuesday!
