How to: An Asymmetrical Fishtail Braid Updo Tutorial

Hey everyone! So this tutorial has been on my to-do list for awhile if you could believe it. I just got around to filming it and, in the words of Barney Stinson from HIMYM, wait for it, not waiting four months to edit the tutorial. Applause, applause, thank you, thank you. Yes, I may have watched too many episodes of HIMYM repeatedly and all in one sitting.

All kidding aside though, this is a very simple and easy-to-do updo. If you are not used to french-braiding fishtail, it just takes a couple of practices, strong arms and lots of hairspray to do this hairstyle. Be sure to keep the strands taut between your fingers and if your hair is slippery like mine, hairspray in between to keep strands staying put.
