How to Do Fishtail Plait

Fishtail Plait

Tools you will need to do a fishtail plait are:

A paddle brush or something similar, some hair bands, hair spray and if you have layers you mite need dome grips.

Before starting any plait you should always make sure you have removed all the knots.

You need to start by taking two sections one either side of the face approximately about 3 cm deep this section should run from the temple down to the top of the ear.

Once you have done that you need to bring the sections back to the crown and cross the right one over the left one.

Now using your right hand press the crossed hair on to the head and hold in place.

Now using our left hand pick up a new section of hair from the left side of the head just under the first section and about the same size.

The new section of hair needs to go over the right hand section but as you are doing this you need to swap your hand and hold down at the crossover point.

The end of your hair will naturally fall to the middle of the head with the rest of the hair.

Now with you right hand pick up a new section of hair from the right side of the head place this section of hair over the hair from the left section and just like before swap your hand that is holding the hair pressed on the head.

Keep repeating this down the head till you run out of hair.

When you get beyond the nape and no longer take hair from each side of the head carry on by taking the hair from underneath of your ponytail and crossing this hair over at the centre front.

All you need to do after you have done that is to secure the hair in with a hair band.
