I started by doing a dutch braid toward the back of her head. I put her hair half-up but left the braid out. I wrapped the braid around the elastic to cover it. Then, I started my fishtail braid. I wanted the braid to look thicker, so I added a little more hair into the two section of the fishtail. I just braided that all the way down and secured it with an elastic.
When you live in Arizona, there isn't much greenery to take pictures in front of. Luckily, the desert provides a beautiful background. Recently, Katelynd (a hair genius) asked me if she could do my hair so she could add some pictures to her portfolio. I would have been crazy to say no! As always, my hair came out beautiful. She started on one side of my part and did a short dutch fishtail braid. Then she secured it with a clear elastic and did another short fishtail right under it securing the end with an elastic. She continued this patten until she reached the end of the section. On the other side of my part, she just did a plain dutch fishtail braid. Then, she overlapped the two braids and held them in place with bobby pins.
