fishtail braids

i'm currently loving fishtail braids (especially to the side)... although i'm not good at doing them to my own hair, i'm trying to get better! 

here's some instructions i found via the beauty bible

To braid:
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.

    No if only I could have someone living in my bathroom to perfect these looks when I leave the house.

  2. i love it! if only i could braid my own hair...

  3. i thought i was the only one who couldn't! let's learn ladies! :)

  4. I think they are so cute! I've known how to fishtail so long but my hair is no longer long enough :( I will just need to appreciate it on others!
