Fishtail braids. A step up from a normal braid and a hairstyle I've had my eye on for the longest time. Even my mom did this style on me one day and I loved it! But...it looked hard, so I didn't think to try it out.
Well, guess who finally learned how to do a fishtail braid?!
This girl, that's who! To my surprise, it was EASY. And totally cute too! I'm going to show you how to do it...and trust me, it isn't as hard as it looks!
To start out, you'll need to give your doll's hair a little spritz with a spray bottle. This will help get rid of fly-aways and tangles.
Then take two small pieces from the front of your doll's head.
Cross those pieces over.
Take note of what piece is on top of the criss-cross, from the left or right side. Depending on which is on top, take a new small piece of hair from the opposite side. For instance, I'm taking from the right side.
Pull that over to join with the other left side piece.
While keeping a tight hold on the rest of the hair, take another small piece from the left side.
Pull that over to the right side. Continue taking one small piece from each side and pulling over.
Guess what? You're fishtail braiding!
When you run out of hair but want to make the braid longer, don't worry! Just continue taking small pieces from these two sections of hair.
See? No problem!
As you reach the end, you're almost done!
Tie off with a hairtie and add a pretty bow for a nice touch! And, ta-da! You've made a fishtail braid!
Elizabeth loves this style and I can't wait to do it on my other dolls! Trying new things is so much fun! :)
I challenge you to try it out too and send me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org! I'd really love to see it!!
Happy Styling! :)
