This is definitely one of our longest posts. I apologize in advance. But if you have curly hair, it’s a good read, I promise!

How to Fishtail Braid

I love a fishtail braid. With very little effort, it creates such a stunning look. It’s most definitely my daughter’s favorite hairstyle, and I love it’s versatility. It can be worn in a classic ponytail, draped in a side ponytail, or made into a statement style when braided along the crown of my forehead. No matter the occasion, it’s simply beautiful. I’ve been asked by several friends, especially ones with little girls, how to fishtail, so here’s a simple how-to on creating the perfect fishtail braid. Remember too though, it’s so easy to create that it can easily be done to your own hair. I wear this exact look (minus the ribbon) all the time!

How to Become a Master French Braider

A couple weeks ago I did a how-to post on one of my favorite braids – pretty side braid into a bun. After, I received several requests from friends for a tutorial on mastering the French braid. I’ve been braiding for so long that I didn’t even think that perhaps we should start from the beginning. As with anything, braiding takes practice, yet once you’ve got it down the possibilities are endless! But first things first, let’s master the French braid, shall we?

step 1: no more braiding to the side

Over the years as I’ve watched friends braid their own hair, I’ve noticed that many actually braid their hair to the side so they can see what they’re doing in the mirror. If this is your method of braiding, the first step in becoming a master French braider, I’m sorry to say, is to stop doing this. Simple, right? Well, you’ll get used to it soon enough! If not, and you usually braid with your hands completely behind your head, then skip to step three.
