How to make an inverted fishtail braid in 7 simple steps
Create a ponytail.
Divide your ponytail.
Begin your braid.
Bring this piece of hair to join the opposite section. This weaving motion will create the inverted effect you require. Repeat this process on the other side.
And don’t worry if you don’t see the effect straight away – you’ll need to braid for several moments before you see the inverted fishtail take shape.
Secure your braid.
For a perfectly undone look, pull out a couple of tendrils near your temples – it’ll help make the hairstyle look relaxed and laid-back.
Just use your thumb and your index finger to gently pinch and pull each section of your braid to tease the weave. See, you’ve now learnt how to make an inverted fishtail plait even fuller!
