Wait & Braid | Side Inverted Fishtail.

I think fishtail braids are one of the most popular braids out there and it's easy to see why! The fishtail braid was one of the first braids I ever learnt and it's still one of my most worn hairstyles. The fishtail does take longer to do but it's definately worth learning! This is an inverted fishtail braid and the only difference from the normal fishtail is that you're crossing strands of hair under and not over. All you have to do is split the hair into two sections and keep on getting little strands from each side and crossing under. I know I'm the worst person to explain this but there are lots of videos on Youtube to help you out!

I decided to do this hairstyle on New Years day and instead of the usual I done the braid at the side of my head and left the rest of my hair out of the plait for a different look. I really like it and I think it was a really glamourous but edgy look for the new year.

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year and liked this style too!
Love Rachel, x

    1. The fishtail was one of the hardest to get the hang of :) I'm happy you know how to do it now though! x

  2. This is a very cool look! I need to learn the upright fishtail braid before the inverted though haha :)
