    Default July 2021: French Fishtail Braid

    Take the French Braid method of adding sections but as in the Fishtail Braid add the sections to two (not three) main sections and when all of your hair is incorporated continue braiding a fishtail.

    Here is TorrinPaige demonstrating a French Braid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC_unKDz_JA
    And here is her Fishtail Braid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht8w19Oulio

    I trust you can put the two together.

    Here is one I did many many moons ago

    I haven't done this in a while. Let's see if I can find the inspiration to do it this month!

    Well, I did it! Took me 40 minutes and I didn't even go all the way down!

    Wonderful. I have been trying to get my daughter to let me do her hair this way.

    Thanks!
    I'm hoping my daughter will let me do hers, too. I'm curious if it will be easier on someone else.

    Heh. And this is why I've never done a fishtail in my own hair. Others have, and I love how they look, but I just don't have that kind of time (or patience)! Yours looks fabulous, though, congrats for managing it!

    Darn hair dressers and their misplaced bra straps... Looks like it'll be longer between hair cuts this time, with an extra 6 inches to regrow!

    Thanks! I had a morning free with nothing else to do.
    (Actually I had a lot to do that I didn't feel like doing so I did this instead!)

    My 7yo daughter let me do her hair this morning. It's a lot easier on someone else and takes less time! She still got tired of standing in front of me, though. I should have gotten her a seat!

    You did a great job on both!

    I managed to do something screwy to the root braid.
