Video Tutorial - Fancy Fishtail Braid

For this video tutorial I decided to do something a little simpler than the holiday party hair, something that you can wear everyday.  This hairstyle is great on wavy and second day hair (or third day hair if you're anything like me).  

Here is a link to the hairspray I used if you are interested in purchasing it:
My hair is wavy in the video, but it works great on straight hair too.
Check back next month for a tutorial on creating Valentine's day hair!

    Cute!! so why do you finish it with hairspray? I see a lot of people do that with braids and updo's but I don't really know why they do it. It's not like the braid's gonna fall out right?

    1. I use hairspray to smooth down fly-aways and friz, and to help secure the hair I wrapped around the elastic base.

      so I did this and I was amazed at how well it worked with my shorter hair! However, the hair i wrapped around the elastic kept falling out, even after I stuck like 4 pins to it! Mind you it was a long piece (i don't have layers like yours) so it wrapped around multiple times. I've never been really good at the whole hiding the hair elastic by wrapping a strand around it and make it look believable, because it always tends to fall out. Oh and of course I didn't apply hairspray... that would've helped?

  7. What kind of product do you use to get your hair wavy?

    1. It's mostly natural. After I wash it I don't comb it out, I just put some mousse in it and diffuse it. Then I curl it loosely with the flat iron. The only other product I use besides that is Second Day by Unite and the Short Sexy Hair spray wax.

  8. What would you suggest doing if you have bangs that come to about your eye brows? Which side should the part be on since I can't really do the tucking part? Love the videos!

  11. Thank you so much! I finally understand fishtail braids now! I tried it on my hair, and it looked great, however my hair has so many layers it doesn't stay in the braid, is there a way to stop that problem??
