Long and thick hair has an advantage when it comes to braids. Fishtail braids look really great when it's chunky and messy, it kinda gives that boho and chic style.

#Repost @meganlacore ・・・ Rich reds and fishtail braids. What's not to love?🌹❤🌹 __________ Quick tip for braiding: Add texture to the hair to help create the perfect braid. ___________ To prep this style I used @biolage RAW Texturizing Styling Spray on damp hair, then dried her hair with a boat bristle brush for shine and control. (You can see her hair straight a little way down my feed. Super shiny!) __________ Next I twist wrapped her hair on a large cone wand for beachy waves, leaving her ends out. This helps the braids hold their shape and keeps the strands from slipping while you are braiding. __________ To create the braids, I sectioned off her crown and temporal sections. First I fishtail braided the crown section back toward the center back of the head. I clipped the two strands of the braid to keep them separated, then braided the side sections back to meet in the center back of the head. I clipped each braid's sections to keep them secure but separated. __________ Next I removed the clips, keeping the strands separated, and overlapped the braids, combining the three left sections in one hand and the three right sections in the other hand. This crosses the braids over each other and brings them together. __________ I then began fishtail braiding again, creating one braid down the remaining hair. After securing with a clear elastic band, I wrapped a section of the ends around the band to conceal it. __________ I finished by misting the dry hair with Texturizing Styling Spray once again and fanning out the braids to expand them. I ran my fingers through the waves, then lightly sprayed everything with #Biolage Complete Control hairspray. __________ Are you enjoying these tips and tutorials? Would you like to see more?
