View Full Version : my first fishtail

April 29th, 2009, 08:55 AM
This is my first fishtail braid:)
I watched some how to videos on youtube and that really helped.

I did this all by myself:)

That is absolutely gorgeous! You did a wonderful job - your first time? Wow!

April 29th, 2009, 08:59 AM
Very nice! I love that style.

I might try this later on today, thank you for giving me the idea. :)

Wow! That's so beautiful. I have never tried fishtail since it looks very labor intensive! Your fishtail is gorgeous, Darkchocolate!

April 29th, 2009, 09:34 AM
That's awesome!!! It looks very nice and smooth, you really did a good job. I always have trouble with the hair from behind my neck to between my shoulders, but once I get it pulled over to the front, I can do the rest with no trouble. :)

April 29th, 2009, 09:40 AM
WOW!!! That turned out FABULOUS!!! :cheer:

April 29th, 2009, 09:45 AM
You did a great job! I think fishtail braids are hard to do on yourself, but yours looks fabulous. :)

April 29th, 2009, 09:48 AM
Goodness,it looks wonderful,especially for your first try.I can't do one at all !
Well done ! :)

April 29th, 2009, 09:54 AM

Wow, I've been practicing the fishtail braid for a while and mine doesn't look nearly as good as that. Fantastic job!

April 29th, 2009, 10:57 AM
That's so beautiful in your shiny, shiny hair! And it looks sooooooo perfect. Nice job!

April 29th, 2009, 11:08 AM
Beautiful! So nice and smooth.

April 29th, 2009, 02:54 PM
Wow that is a very beautiful braid! :) Well done! :cheer:

That looks great! now you have to work on a french fishtail to match!
Here's a party to celebrate (I couldn't resist this one)

Thanks Everyone:)

I actually had a friend in high school who used to braid my hair this way but I could never figure out how to do it until I saw a youtube how to video :)

I am going to conquer the Dutch braid next:)

That's awesome!!! It looks very nice and smooth, you really did a good job. I always have trouble with the hair from behind my neck to between my shoulders, but once I get it pulled over to the front, I can do the rest with no trouble. :)

It is hard to braid your own hair but if there is not anyone else around to do it you have to do it:)
My arms get tired from starting it in the back but when I am able to swing my braid over my shoulder to finish it my arm is glad to get the rest:)

You did a fab job- it looks great!

April 29th, 2009, 04:45 PM
Wow! Good job, it really turned out great. That is a difficult braid to do and takes a lot longer to do, but the look of it is well worth all the time and arm pain haha.

Dark chocolate, that looks so gorgeous in your dark, shiny hair.

April 29th, 2009, 04:55 PM
OOOO!!! Teach us! :D

April 29th, 2009, 04:56 PM
It looks really good :-D

April 29th, 2009, 05:18 PM
That is impressive! They're so hard to do on yourself.

April 29th, 2009, 05:25 PM
Wow first time?That looks awensome

April 29th, 2009, 05:53 PM

Dark Chocolate! That is so lovely! Please give us the link to the youtube that you used to learn! I want to learn to do it on myself, I can do the fishtale on others, but my fingers are all thumbs for my own hair, so please share! I would love to be able to do my own fishtale! Not that I could look nearly as nice as yours, but still:D Great Job! :thumbsup: :rockerdud

Your first fishtail? Wow, that looks amazing. You'll have no problem with the Dutch braid (can you French braid? I actually find it easier to do a Dutch).
I wore my hair in two herringbone braids today (same as fishtail). They're really fun and different. :)

April 29th, 2009, 06:23 PM
That came out really nice looking!

April 29th, 2009, 06:26 PM
SOOOO pretty !!! Great job.

April 29th, 2009, 08:34 PM
Great job! Your hair is so shiney!

That fishtail is wonderful! =o Haha, I'm trying to get a friend of mine to teach me and let me practice xP Braiding fascinates me, and I envy those who do it well =(
