Easy Fishtail Braid Hack That Looks Like the Real Deal
If you have a hard time braiding, but love the look of a fishtail braid, then this fishtail braid hack is for you.
No-one will ever know it’s not an actual braid!
Tools and materials:
- Hair elastics
1. Start with a loose ponytail
First, bring all of your hair over one shoulder to the front.
Now, take a section of hair from the front, and make a very loose ponytail with it.
2. Flip your ponytail
Use your fingers to make a hole in that ponytail, above the hair elastic.
Push your ponytail through that hole from front to back, making a flip.
3. Flip again
Now, take two sections of hair from behind your flipped ponytail.
Bring the sections together at the front of your flip.
Pull those sections through your first flip, above the hair elastic but below the flip above it.
Secure those sections loosely with another hair elastic.
Repeat with another flip from another two sections of hair.
Continue this process of flipping until all of your hair has been put into this mock-braid, leaving as long a tail at the bottom as you wish.
4. Loosen your braid
Use your fingers to gently loosen the sections of your braid.
