A fishtail braid tutorial for beginners. We promise, anyone can do it!
We love trying out the latest trends and styles on our own waves, curls and coils in the NaturallyCurly offices, but we have to admit - the fishtail has always had us stumped. So we were thrilled to find this simple tutorial by Allure that made the coveted fishtail look totally achievable. Before you get started, stylist Matt Fugate suggests working on second or third-day hair because this braid looks best when it's thick and textured. I think the key to this simple tutorial is in the first step: tying the hair back into a ponytail before you begin. This step prevents the braid from falling apart while you each time you reach for the next strand. You could even remove the ponytail holder at the end and tug lightly on sections of the braid if you're looking for that looser, bohemian vibe - which we definitely will be this summer! Watch the video for the simple, step-by-step tutorial.
