Fishtail Braid Tutorial by Southern Belle Beauty

I’ve always thought a fishtail braid looked so complicated to do, but Southern Belle Beauty and Red Boat Photography team up today to prove me wrong. This thorough tutorial shows how easy it is to do a fishtail braid as well as how to wear it with style. It can be dressed up or down, so enjoy, and and give it try for your next date night or outing!

Step 2: Take a piece of hair from the right side and cross it over to the left side. Next, take a piece of hair from the left side and cross it over to the right. Repeat this process until you reach the end of the hair length.

 Tip: Notice she is pulling hair from the outer side of the braid to cross over.
