I must admit, when I first saw this braid, waaaay back when I started the 30 Days of Hair Challenge, I was intimidated. I remember watching the video and thinking to myself that there was NO WAY I would ever be able to do this braid! I did have to bribe my kids with phone time so they would let me practice on their hair-but it was worth it! After multiple attempts over multiple days, it finally came together quite nicely!
You can see how the French Fishtail really steps it up a little bit from the Fishtail (which I also think is adorable-and easier!). The hardest part was getting the stranding good and tight so that it would stay-you really have to pay attention to hand placement! I had to watch the tutorial multiple times just to study her hands.
Here is a later attempt, taken after the first photo, where I started the braid up a little bit higher on the head and got the stranding a bit tighter:
A little work-but well worth the effort! Happy Braiding!
