QUICK RUN-DOWN | STEPS
- Tie your hair in a side ponytail.
- Split your ponytail in 2 – as if you’re doing a normal fishtail braid. We’ll name it Section A & Section B. Take a “thin strand” of hair from the outside of the Section A, and cross it OVER the Section A, but UNDER the Section B (use your thumb to wrap the hair under the Section B).
- Create an opening where the thin strand passed under the Section B, and insert 2 fingers through it so you can grab the “thin strand” of hair and pull it through. This will create a knot.
- Once it’s been knotted, return the “thin strand” back to the original section. In this case, it should be placed in Section A again.
- Repeat on the opposite section.
- Rinse and repeat all the way down and tie it with an elastic band.
Please note, because this braiding method requires “knotting” this will make your hair slightly shorter than a normal fishtail braid. You’re giving up “some length for thickness.
Your choice; long, thin as pancakes but cute, fishtail braids, or slightly shorter, but lush and full fishtail braids.
