Hair 101: The Fishtail Braid

Leona Lewis

Nicole Scherzinger
The fishtail braid is a little bbit of an old trend, but is still being rocked by celebs and everyday girls. I have finally grown my hair out long enough to begin experimenting with lots of different hairstyle and I have fallen in love with t he fishtail braid. The fishtail braid is perfect because it looks good wether its sleek or messy, gets the hair off your face, and looks super unique, but is actually easy and quick to create! Leona Lewis creats a messy, laidback fishtail look while Nicole transform the normal high ponytail into a high fishtail. Fishtail braid your own hair by following the steps below, all you need is a brush, a ponytail holder, a rubber band and bobby pins.
  1. Begin my brushing your hair back or to the side, depending on where you would like your fishtail to lay, and secure with a ponytail holder.
  2. Seperate two sections of hair within your ponytail.
  3. Pull out a medium/small peice of hair from one of  your sections and cross it over to the opposite section. Repeat with the other section.
  4. Continue to do Step 3 until you have fishtailed as much hair as you would like.
  5. Secure the end with a ponytail holder or a rubber band and place bobby pins wherever necessary.
If any peices of hair fall out while your fishtailing your hair just push them back into the braid and spray them with hairspray. Remember to be patient and practice makes perfect to get the best looking hairstyle. Try out the fishtail braid and even wear it to the side or as a low ponytail, whatever works for you!
