This striking plait looks deceptively difficult to achieve but follow our simple steps below and you’ll have mastered the fish tail plait in no time!
- Making sure the parting falls straight down the middle of the back of your head, divide your hair into two large sections.
- Pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the left section and pull it tightly over to the inside of the right section.
- Repeat on the other side and keep going until you run out of hair.
- Secure with a band.
VK Hairstyling’s top tip for the perfect fish tail plait: to make hair more manageable, particularly if it is thick, wash and condition it and then create the plait whilst the hair is wet.
