Fishtail Braid

As ever, start by brushing your hair.
For a braid I brush it all over to one side.
Smooth your hair and seperate it into two sections.
Take your index finger and take a thick chunk from the back of one of the large sections.
Bring the chunk over the section into the middle and add it to the other section.

Carry on down the hair, taking big chunks. 
This shouldn't take you too long at all. 
If you struggle with how fiddly it is, take larger chunks.


When your braid is done, take a clear band and secure the braid.
Mine we're from Claires Accessories years ago
& are super handy for lots of hair style.
When secure pull you braid to adjust the shape and clip any strays.
Enjoy your mermaidy braid :)
