So many viewers have been asking for a hairstyle tutorial on how to do a Fishtail Braid (also called a mermaid braid). Here it is!!! It is a fun hair style, with a very unique look… and you can pretty much use it anywhere you would typically use a simple braid.
For this tutorial, I explain how you can have the braid look two different ways. The first is one with a ponytail into the braid ending with another band (typical braid style), with the second being a more Bohemian loose style with only one band at the end. Younger girls prefer the tight fishtail while teens particularly like the latter, which is what I demonstrate here.
If you do not know how to fishtail braid, please pay particular attention to how to handle the stranding…
Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, 1 long aligator clip, 1 large hairband, hairspray, accessories if desired.
Time Requirement: 5 minutes
Skill Level: Medium
