Half Up Fishtail Twist Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the left side.Β Pick up a section of hair near the part and split it into two equal halves.Β Begin a fishtail french braid by crossing a small section from the left side over to the right side then a small piece from the right side over to the left. Gently pull on the edges of the braid to make it wider and more full.
  • Step 2 / Bring the braid around the back of the head and secure it in place with several bobby pins.
  • Step 3 / Pick up a new section of hair from the left side and twist it together. Gently pull on the edges of the twist to make it fuller.
  • Step 4 / Wrap the twist around the back of the head so it lays underneath the end of the fishtail braid.
  • Step 5 / Slide bobby pins into the twist to secure it in place, ensuring they are hidden underneath.
  • Step 6 / Add some curls to the ends of the hair with a 1 1/4″ curling iron and set the style with hairspray.
