View Full Version : I did my first Fishtail Braid. :D

October 16th, 2009, 02:40 AM
Not a big accomplishment, I suppose. But, I'm happy about it. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to do, but it took me FOREVER. xD Guess I should practice more.

Here's a picture:

Looks great!
I still can't get those to look neat, they always end up velly fluffy...:p

October 16th, 2009, 03:00 AM
Oh wow, well done! :)

I was having a go at my first fishtail/herringbone last night. It was so much effort and about half way through it didn't even approximate to what I was expecting to I had to give up. :(

October 16th, 2009, 03:06 AM
Thanks, both of you. :)

October 16th, 2009, 03:34 AM
Wow that's a very pretty one, Naamah!:) Well done.
I haven't yet dared to try one ... I think I'll have too many hairs sticking out if I do (layers and taper!). I might wait till my hair is a lot longer.

October 16th, 2009, 06:20 AM
I've always wanted to be able to do one of those. Yours looks perfect!!! When my hair was longer I tried it and got tired about half way through. Well tired and confused.

October 16th, 2009, 06:24 AM
What a gorgeous braid! :)

October 16th, 2009, 06:24 AM
That looks really great! I've always thought the fishtail braids looked so elegant.

October 16th, 2009, 06:29 AM
That is a beautiful braid, Naamah! :thumbsup:

They still take forever, even with practice. LOL!

October 16th, 2009, 07:00 AM
Don't know which is more amazing, your hair.....or your eyes!

October 16th, 2009, 07:02 AM
Lovely, looks nice on you :D

October 16th, 2009, 07:10 AM
I love it; you did such a good job. I haven't taken the time to do one of these in so long that I can't even remember.

A job well done,:cheese: looks pretty

October 16th, 2009, 09:21 AM
That looks very neat and beautiful.

October 16th, 2009, 09:25 AM
Gorgeous. That turned out really good. I've tried, but I think somehow I mess up when I pull it over my shoulder so I'm trying to braid longer before I bring it over my shoulder. My arms get so sore! lol

Good job though. Very beautiful braid.

October 16th, 2009, 09:31 AM
I can rope braid but I still can NOT do a fish tail!

Looks great! :cool:

I'll rope braid yours if you fish tail mine! :D

October 16th, 2009, 09:37 AM
You must have a lot of patience to make it look that neat. Fishtails do take forever. It's lovely!

October 16th, 2009, 10:14 AM
Breath-taking braid!

October 16th, 2009, 10:45 AM
I used to do those years ago...now, I don't think I could do one to save my life. That looks beautiful!

October 16th, 2009, 10:57 AM
It looks awesome!! Mine still look way messy. :p

October 16th, 2009, 03:10 PM
Very well done! I cannot do this one for the life of me :lol:

October 16th, 2009, 03:12 PM
That was excellently done! I agree. Those braids take ages to do, exponentially so with longer hair.

October 16th, 2009, 03:14 PM

Uber awesome. Nice job.

Gotta admit I had never even heard of or saw this kind of braid before I landed here. It is quickly becoming my favorite braid.

October 16th, 2009, 03:19 PM
That's lovely!

October 16th, 2009, 03:22 PM
That's so lovely! Good job!!

October 16th, 2009, 03:23 PM
Whoa! For a first one (heck, even for a 100th one!) that is awesome! I've made many fishtail braids on my own hair and I never get it to look so neat and perfect.

Cheese for you! :cheese:

October 16th, 2009, 05:28 PM
Gorgeous braid! It took me FOREVER (and a lot of failed attempts) to do my first fishtail and it was way messier... I don't think I've gotten any faster at it either, haha! I find it a lot easier to fishtail braid other people's hair than my own.

I love your hair color too!!!

October 16th, 2009, 05:30 PM
Very nice!

October 16th, 2009, 05:42 PM
That looks great especially for a first time. I still can't get mine to look neat (but I don't really take the time to do it).

October 16th, 2009, 05:46 PM
Beautiful Naamah :D

October 16th, 2009, 05:57 PM
Amazing braid!

October 16th, 2009, 06:11 PM
Gread Braid! I can never get a fishtail braid to work for me.... Sort of ironic, I know. :)

October 16th, 2009, 06:37 PM
That is the first braid I started to learn after joining LHC. (I already knew the french braid) Looks beautiful! :)

October 16th, 2009, 08:12 PM
Looks amazing, this is a perfect looking fishtail braid

October 16th, 2009, 08:15 PM
Very nice!! I love that kind of braid, though like you say it does take forever! It looks very elven.

October 16th, 2009, 09:23 PM
That's a wonderful fishtail braid! I find those to be a bit of a pain. I am still trying to get mine to look all nice and neat. Great job!

October 19th, 2009, 02:15 AM
Beautifully done! :)

October 19th, 2009, 07:17 AM
Oooo pretty!!

October 19th, 2009, 07:34 AM
Wow, that looks great. Definitely put one in the win column. I've attempted that braid a few times myself and they have always come out as disasters.

October 19th, 2009, 07:37 AM
I done my first one the other day but I didn't dare try to do it behind... I stuck with something I could see while I worked. I went with a side braid :D

Yours looks awesome. Great job :cheer:

October 19th, 2009, 07:49 AM
That's gorgeous! I still haven't been able to do a successful fishtail braid on my own hair. I can manage on others though. Congrats!

October 19th, 2009, 08:50 AM
Congrats, it looks great!

October 19th, 2009, 09:09 AM
Wow the braid is so neat and sleek! Nice work! And your hair color is gorgeous as well!

October 19th, 2009, 09:32 AM
This is not a braid I usually like, but I love yours!! The sections seem larger and the whole effect is smoother and more defined. Beautiful!

October 19th, 2009, 09:46 AM
Holy awesome, that looks amazing!
I especially like the top where the braid starts, it's got this soft, wavy look to it. Great job!

October 19th, 2009, 09:48 AM
Ooh, well done! That looks beautiful!:)

October 19th, 2009, 12:53 PM
This is probably one of the best fishtail's that I've seen! Its very intricate and the sections going down your braid look very cool in the "V" shaped pattern! :thumbsup:

October 19th, 2009, 01:50 PM
That's a great fishtail braid, and with your haircolour, it looks simply stunning! :flower:

October 19th, 2009, 01:54 PM
Such a lovely braid! Great job!:blossom: I usually do it with my hair in a pony...I tried this version but it ended quite messy.:D

October 19th, 2009, 01:59 PM
It looks beautiful, along with those eyes! Lucky gal ;)

October 19th, 2009, 02:05 PM
What a beautiful braid! I love the color of your hair and it's length:crush:

I tried a french fishtail a couple of days ago after looking up youtube instructions, but it was all loose and so short :(

Do you have trouble taking these out? They seem to tangle my hair a bit . . .
