is loving braids at the moment especially the fishtail braid … so we
thought we’d share this Leona Lewis Inspired Messy Fishtail Braid with
you guys. :) It looks super intricate but in fact, it’s so easy to
create once you get into the swing of things. Braids
are bang-on-trend, easy to re-create, and they make a real statement.
What more could we want, hey lovelies?! Read on to find out how to
recreate this Leona Lewis inspired fishtail braid for yourselves. :)
time to decide which side you would like your Leona Lewis Inspired
Messy Fishtail Braid to sit on, most people opt to create the braid on the
same side as their fringe so all of the hair is on the same side.
However, if you don’t have a fringe, then it generally doesn’t make a
difference. Once you have decided which side your braid is on, swoop all
of the hair to the specific side. Be sure to fit your hair extensions
in line with the top of your ear before swooping all of your hair to the
side and before you begin braiding.
you are going to concentrate on the opposite side to where the fishtail braid will actually sit. This is because we’re going to start braiding
from the opposite side and take it round and finish off the braid on the
side where your fishtail braid will sit. :) So we’re on the opposite
side, you will need to divide the hair into three sections. We’re going
to start off with a french braid and finish it with a fishtail
braid...It’s easier than it sounds, I promise.
you have your three sections, cross the first section over the middle
section and add it to the third section, this should leave you with two
sections that should not cross each other again. You then need to take a
little section of hair from the outer side of one section and add it to
the opposite section. Now you will need to repeat this on the other
side, so take a little section of hair from the outer side of the second
section and add it to the first section. Continue french braiding round
your head until you reach the other side.
your french braid has reached the other side of your head, it’s time to
mix it up a little. French braid around to the the other side and finish
it off the around where your ear is. Now we’re going to start styling
the hair into a fishtail braid. So instead of three sections, you’re
just going to need two. You could always use a small elastic to secure
the french braid whilst you create the fishtail braid and then remove
the elastic later on for a flawless finish and to make it a little
easier. Step Four:
you need to section your hair into two equal sections. Take a small
section from the back of one section, bring it over the top of the
section you have taken it from and put it under the opposite section.
Repeat this on the other side; so take a small section from the back,
bring it over the section you have just taken it from put it under the
opposite section. Repeat this step all the way down to the ends of your
hair, alternating between both sections. Secure in place with a hair
band and then carefully pull the sides of the fishtail braid to create a
messy effect, just like the lovely Leona. Be sure not to pull too hard,
just enough to ease the hair out a little.
P.S. For a softer look, pull pieces of hair down at the side of your face which will look just as pretty. :)
