A simple fishtail braid can help you look chic and in-control even on a bad hair day. This fuss-free hairstyle is also versatile enough to give you an instant shot of glam!
If there is one hairdo that is suitable for all hair types, it is the fishtail braid; it gives you an instant boost of elegance yet keeps it simple. Pair it with classic winged eyeliner and a red pout for a day look and decorate it with pearls for a night out!
To begin with, make sure that your hair is washed and conditioned with a volumising shampoo and conditioner.
Brush out your hair so that it is tangle free. Use a texturising spray to lift the roots. Detangle with your fingers, not a comb, to retain the volume so that the style does not fall flat.
Shift the entire volume of the hair on one side and start braiding from behind the ear. Unlike a regular braid that is made with three sections of hair, the fishtail is created with two. Take thin strands of hair from the outer sides of the two primary sections and twist them one on top of the other as you progress.
Tie a simple rubber band at the end to secure the braid. Finish with a medium-hold shine spray to keep the movement of the hair natural.
Expert Tip: Use volumising products so that the fishtail braid looks fuller. Keep the texture a bit messy for a glamorous appeal.
