The fishtail braid appeared heavily on the catwalks in 2011, and is set to be the hairstyle of 2012. Its much easier to create than it looks, but if you think you’d struggle, enlist the help of a friend!
Apply the Dry Shampoo throughout hair to add texture. To distribute it evenly and prevent overloading the hair, spray the dry shampoo onto your paddle brush and brush the product through the hair from roots to ends.
Get volume and texture by spraying a dressing brush with Session Hold Hairspray and back brushing the roots, section at a time. Repeat to the base of the crown.
Split hair into two even sections. Take the outer half of the right section and pull over and across into the middle. Then take the opposite outer half of the left section over across to middle.
Repeat this process down the braid taking the same amount in section as your replacing. This keeps the braid a nice even shape. Pull braid over to one side as you plait.
Spray the end of braid with Hairspray and backcomb ends to hold. A hair tie (bobble) can be used if you don’t think this will hold.
Gently loosen the braid with fingers.
Spray over the finished style with Hairspray and use fingertips to gently loosen the hair at the roots and crown to add lift and texture.
