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.

* The More You Know 🌈🌈🌈... #Repost @hai.stylist ・・・ BLACK TO BLONDE: The Color Journey .. . What is your BEAUTY BUDGET? After a quick survey across the states, based on our current beauty market, it is fair to say that it takes time and money to complete a corrective color process. The chart above displays the hair color-lifting process, the time it requires, and the very reasonable AVERAGE price per hour/session. (This will vary depending on demographic and level of experience) This is an INVESTMENT that’s worth every penny.. Clients as well as colorists should be 100% aware of what it takes to go on a "Color Journey". Take your time and enjoy the "view" (stages) and take lots of pictures along the way. Bon Voyage! . . #blacktoblonde #balayage #silvergrey #colorjourney #behindthechair #lanzalove #lanzacolor #haircolor #colorcorrection @lanzahaircare #btchaistylist @haisalonwichita #haitranhair #correctivecolor

#BTCMORNINGQUICKIE! ... Razor CUTTING w/ Shears by #THEBTCTEAM's @brianacisneros! . I started cutting hair when I was just 11 years old! My dad got his start as a pencil artist for marvel comics and has worked as a very successful artist my whole life. I owe a lot more than just my career to him. My technical came later, after I turned 18. That's when I became addicted to education! I love learning every different way there is to do hair! I still always tap into my original artistic approach... sculpting the hair until it responds the way that I want it to. It's not about the hair you cut off but rather the hair that you leave on the head. This video is obviously in fast motion so what you cannot see is how I am opening and closing my shears to get the softest effect with out any damage to the hair. Here is just one example of my "Razor cut" using my shears. Asymmetrical shaggy Bob ( tap for audio back story ✌️) A ONE NIGHT STAND w/ Briana!!!
