If you know me, you know I love a good braid! They are always a good idea in any season. A fishtail is such a classic and a favorite of mine for sure. Another favorite of mine is Suzy from Penny+Boss! If you haven’t read their blog, you better get over there quick. You are missing out, they are the cutest. So! Back to the fishtail…I decided to do this braid on Suzy and I’m going to walk you through it! You can fishtail by moving the hair over top of the braid, but for this one I chose to move the hair underneath. It creates a lifted braid (so the braid rests on top of the hair) if that makes sense!
Part your hair off to one side, and begin your braid close to your part. Take a small section and split it into two-A and B. Take half of A and move it underneath and add it to B. Then take half of B and move it underneath and add it to A. Again, take half of A and move it underneath to B. Now take a small piece of hair(not already in the braid) from that same side and also move that underneath to B. Then, move half of B under to A. Grab extra hair(not in the braid) and also move that under to A. Repeat this a hundred times 🙂 Make sure you are always moving a piece from A to B or vice versa BEFORE you add in hair from the rest of your head. If you don’t, your braid will be all kinds of crazy. Keep the braid as tight as you can while braiding. Braid as far as you like then tie it off. Gently pull on the sides of the braid to loosen it and make it larger. Hairspray, and you are done! I love to wear this with all my hair in the braid, like Suzy is here, but I also love to stop it around my ear and pin it back, leaving the rest of my hair down.
I’m thinking I’ll make a video for this look soon and let you know when it’s up! Thank you for reading 🙂 XO

New reader here! Just found your blog through Periscope, found you on Periscope through a friend on there, CleanhousewithKids. 🙂 Funny how one click leads to another. 🙂 Anyways, I love this hairstyle! So pretty! I’d love to see a video too! I’m not the greatest at interpreting written directions but if I see a video how-to, I can do it! 🙂 Looking forward to reading more of your posts!
Wow! I didn’t realize I use so many smiley faces. 😛 Hmmm…..is that weird?!?!
Oh my goodness, thank you so much! I’m so happy we have found each other. Periscope is so fun, I think. I will get to work on a video for this. I agree, written steps are hard to follow! I look forward to seeing more of you. Thanks!
PS I like all the smiley faces, definitely not weird haha
