Fishtail braid

The fishtail (or herringbone) braid may look complicated, but you actually only need to work with two sections of hair, not three like the French braid. Thebeautydept’s video tutorial gives you clear step-by-step directions, and Lauren Conrad even illustrates each step for you. Watch the video to the left for the entire tutorial.

Things to keep in mind: The fishtail braid requires separating your hair into different sections constantly, so make sure your hair is well brushed before starting.
