How To: The Fish Tail Braid

Tory Burch Backstage at New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013 CollectionsBraids are great for winter because they look totally adorable poking out from under your beanie, they can bed dressed up or down and they’re pretty much rain-proof. Plus, once you get the technique, they’re a much faster option than blowing out your hair. Our pick of the season is the fish tail braid and they are surprisingly easy to do…

1. Start by dividing the hair you want to braid into two equal sections.

2. Now hold the right section with your right hand. Then, using your left hand, pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outside of the left section and cross it over to the inside of the right section. Trust me, its not as hard as it sounds – you just need to practice.

3. You now need to repeat this process on the other side so hold the left section in your left hand and use your right hand to pick up a one-eighth-inch chunk of hair from the outer right section and cross it over to the inside of the left section.

4. Continue this process making sure you alternate sides after each cross over just like you would a normal braid until you reach the end of your hair then secure with a hair tie.

5. To make sure your braid won’t be going anywhere finish with a spritiz of hairspray.
