Braids are definitely in this year, and the new hairstyle trend is being picked up by celebrities and fans alike. One of the favorite types of braids that is seen everywhere today is the fish tail braid. A few of the celebrities that have been showing the popular fish braid are Kim Kardashian, Angela Simmons and Rihanna.
This braid is fairly easy to do and the required steps fairly easy to follow. Learn how to fish tail braid by following this four steps:
1. Divide the hair into two same size sections at the bottom of the back of the head.
2. Use your right hand to grasp the right section of hair. With your left hand take a smaller section of hair from the outside of the left section.
3. Cross this smaller section over to the inside of the right section.
4. Repeat with the left side, taking your right hand to grasp a small piece of hair from the left-side.
Continue crossing these small sections over to the opposite side until you come to the end of the hair. Put an elastic on the end, and you now know how to fish tail braid.
There are also other braids besides the fish braid that are fun to learn and to wear. When considering hair braiding, the best way to start is with the beginners braid. This braid is made with three strands of equal sized hair. The right strand is brought over the middle strand and the right strand becomes the middle strand. Then the left strand is brought over the middle.
A reverse braid is made by simply reversing the actions used for a beginner braid. In other words the right strand is first brought underneath the middle strand. Proceed as before only going under instead of over.
Braids are fashionable and braiding is fun. The fish tail braid is especially popular. The more you do it the better you will be at it. Remember the braid doesn’t have to be perfect. Have fun with it, and enjoy your new style.
