A braid is always the best decision when you have dirty hair or don’t have time to make a better hairstyle. A simple braid can do so many things – it can keep your hair away from your face when you’re studying. You can use it to curl your hair naturally without using heat. It’s basically suitable for every ocassion and hair length because of how versatile it can be. And when you put a floral head band or some hair clips you can easily tranform your hair in a beautiful accessory! But why make a regular braid when you’re on the go when you can make s fishtail braid instead? The fishtail braid is easy, too, and is way more cuter than a simple braid. Here’s how you make a fishtail braid:
First, divide your hair into two sections. Then, pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the right section. Pull it over the top of the right section, and grasp it under the left section. Pull a strand of hair from the outside of the left section, pull it over the left section, then weave it under the right section. Repeat that until you have reached the bottom of the braid. Use a clear elastic band (or two) and secure the braid. Using your fingers, a comb or something else that’s thin and long, start messing up your braid to make it look more voluminous. But be careful not to take strands of hair from the braid of else you’ll have to start over! Use some hairspray to secure everything in place and your messy fishtail braid is done!
At first you may have problems getting the hang of it but I assure you, after the second or third time you will become a braid master! Put a beanie on and mess up the braid a bit to make the hairstyle fall-appropriate! Or twist it gently into a low bun and secure with bobby pins to make your hair more formal – the options are so many, it all depends on how you like your hair to look.
