French Fish Braid Video

Someone on our Facebook Page (thank you Brandi) found and posted this hairstyle and was wondering how to do it. If you want to see the original version of what I was trying to recreate here, you can go to our facebook page and look under the "fan photos" to see it. I didn't dare post the picture on our blog because I'm not sure if it's under copyright or whatever. :) Anyway, I think it's adorable and HAD to try it out.


I did this with wet hair. I'm thinking if you want it more tousled looking (like the picture) dry hair would probably work better. Or, if you're lucky enough to be working with naturally curly hair, even better!

So, here's the french fish video. Basically you begin with 2 sections and start the same way you do a regular fish tail (taking a small piece from one side and crossing it to the other.) Then, after the first two pieces have been crossed, you continue with this same pattern, just taking your pieces from the sides instead of from the original sections the rest of the way down. That didn't make sense, did it? ;)
I think if you can figure out how to get this started, the rest will be a cinch!

Thanks for sharing the cute idea with us, Brandi!

  1. That is so cute. I love that hairstyle. I was just thinking about your blog the other day when I was doing my middle daughter's hair. I couldn't remember your site's name or anything so I am glad I saw your widget on someone else's site. I'm going to join your Facebook page especially so I can remember the hairstyles I want to try on my daughter.
