Fish Tail Braid Tutorial {with pics!}

Don't you just love all the braided hairstyles that are out there right now? I certainly do! I especially love the fish tail braid - so, so cute! This braid looks ultra fancy but it is a cinch to do yourself. Wanna know how? Here it is {thanks to the staff at Glamour magazine}

Step 1: Brush out hair {I like to flat iron as well for a smooth look, but you can leave your hair in its natural texture for a slightly messy look}

Step 2: Pull hair over to one side and divide it into two equal sections {creating two ponytail-esque sections}We'll call them sections 1 and 2 to simplify things a bit.

Step 3: Take a small piece of hair from the outside of section 1 and cross it over, putting it in with the hair in section 2.

Step 4: Then, simply take a small piece of hair from outside of section 2 and cross it over, putting it in with the hair in section 1. {easy, peasy, right?}

Step 5: Be sure to pull it all really tight before you start at step 3 all over again. Repeat steps 3 and 4 again and again until you get to the end of your hair and secure with a hair band.

Voila! You've got a fish tail braid! Now, I do want to warn you that it will take a few tries before you get it just right, but once you do you will LOVE it!!!
