And if you’re looking for a new braid to try, go for the fishtail French braid. It’s easy, chic, and gets you ready for video conferencing. Read on to learn how to make a fishtail French braid.
Steps in Creating a Fishtail French Braid
Let your hair dry naturally. Then, comb it gently to remove tangles. Start detangling the tips of your hair before you go up and comb from your roots.
Divide and conquer
If you want to add texture to your hair, spritz hairspray on it once it has dried. Then, gather a section of hair near your crown and divide it into three equal sections.
Create a French braid
Start making a French braid by crossing the left section over the middle section and the right over the new middle section.
Continue braiding your hair, adding more hair to your French braid as you go along.
Switch to fishtail braid
Once your braid reaches your nape, switch to a fishtail braid and continue braiding until the tips.
Secure with an elastic
Tie the tips of your fishtail French braid with an elastic.
