Braids: @hairbyamandamay / Epic Salon Chandler, AZ
Today we did a half up / half down fishtail braid with two small traditional 3-strand braids, one on each side. I actually just started a YouTube channel and you can watch this tutorial here (please subscribe and give a thumbs up if you like it!) This look is super easy to recreate but it can be a little tricky to do on yourself, it just takes practice!! Here’s the step-by-step:
Step 1: Curl + tease hair. Hairspray to secure.
Step 2: Pull top half of your hair back (as much as you like) and tie with a clear elastic. I like to leave some front pieces out to frame my face.
Step 3: Separate pony into two even pieces.
Step 4: Grab a small piece from each side and cross over to the other.
Step 5: Repeat this over and over until the braid is finished.
Step 6: Secure the end of the braid with a clear elastic.
Step 7: Pull the braid apart as much as you like to make the braid thicker + more full looking.
Step 8: Add a traditional 3-strand braid on each side of the fishtail. (I don’t rubber band those)
Step 9: Pull apart the little braids too so they are thicker.
Step 10: EASY AS THAT!!
@hairbyamandamay is literally my hairy godmother!! haha get it! Okay, that was cheesy but she’s literally AMAZING and can do anything if I just show her a photo.
