Quick Look: Classic Fishtail Braid. Perfect for a Casual Sunday Afternoon

Classic Fishtail Braid from Start to Finish

  1. Start by washing and conditioning hair thoroughly.
  2. Brush out all knots.

   3. Get out your favorite smoothing oil treatment. I'm using Pequi Oil that I got in my
       October Ipsy Bag. I love it so much. It gives just the right amount of shine and smoothness and smells great!
   4. Put a just a few dots into your hand. Remember... "A Little Dabble Do Ya!"

  5. Gently work it through your hair with your fingers paying close attention to the ends. 
  6. Next comb it all through to distribute the oil evenly.

   7. Blow Dry your hair thoroughly.
   8. When you have completely dried your hair, you are ready for the next step.

  9. Grab your trusty oil again and add a few drops to your fingertips.
 10. Smooth the Pequi Oil over any fly aways.

Now to begin your braid...

  1. Divide your hair into 2 even bunches.
  2. Next, take 1 small piece from the outer side of your hair.
  3. Combine this piece of hair with the bunch of hair on the opposite side.
  4. Now take a small piece from the other outer side of your hair.
  5. Combine that piece with the bunch of hair on the opposite side.
  6. Continue to repeat those steps and soon you will begin to see the makings of your fishtail. The smaller the pieces, the more defined your fishtail will be.
  7. Keep going until you have about 2 inches left of your hair.
  8. Secure with a clear elastic band.

You now have a completed fishtail braid.
