Ahh, the elusive fishtail braid. I see these are getting more and more popular. I’ve known how to do one since I was a kid, but its never been a go to style for me. I do love a good side braid though. So, I saw this on Pinterest:
It comes from the blog A Beautiful Mess which is actually one of my favorite blogs. I have quite a few things from their blog I want to try.
And the best part is all you need is some yarn!
I chose yellow, pink and blue. The blue did not show up so much because my hair is so dark, but I still like having a darker color thrown in the mix.
So the first thing I did was parted my hair all the way around and pinned the top up with a claw clip. I took small pieces of hair and tied yarn around that piece. Make sure the yarn is longer than your hair.
When I fishtail my hair I always secure it with a pony holder or else its just a mess. I take it off once I’m all done.
The next step is to just fishtail like normal. If you don’t know how to do a fishtail you can find tutorials all over the internet and youtube. A Beautiful Mess also shows you how.
When you get to the end tie it off like normal.
Now what I did was just cut all my loose ends of yarn and then chose one of my colors and cut a new piece. I wrapped that around to cover the hair tie and loose ends. Then I took of the hair tie at the top of the fishtail.
It wasn’t necessarily a quick hair style, but I really like the effect so I would definitely wear this.
