I am so excited to share this alternative technique to a Fishtail Braid by adding a "Twist”. This one takes practice and I know you will find the end result to be beautiful as well as having a lot of visual interest! The difference in this technique as opposed to a normal Fishtail Braid is the twist of an outside strand and getting your guest involved.  You need her!  She will be your "extra two hands" and she will feel a little more special knowing she helped you with the process.

Add twists to your fishtail braid for a more detailed up style.

HOT TIP: As I do with all of my up styles and braids, I texturized our model’s hair with the Sam Villa Texturizing Iron prior to styling. Adding texture not only gives the hair more grip but also imparts a visual organic look and feel to the hair.  And the styles last much longer! 

You will find that this technique creates a lot of excitement in the salon! As you have your guest involved, others will take notice.  Don’t be surprised if you gain an audience around you while executing the Twisted Fishtail Braid! Watch the video above to see how it’s done.

Take a simple fishtail braid and add a twist to it for added character and visual interest.
