Checkboard Fishtail With Ribbon

Hello!! This checkboard is slightly different from the previous one. The only difference is that the previous one is done with 5 strand including ribbon strand, this one is done with 4 strand including ribbon strand. The reason is this checkboard is a fishtail version & fishtail has 2 strands. It’s is looks beautiful when incorporated with ribbon.

You’ll Need: Brush,ribbon, rat-tail comb, elastic, bobby pins, spray bottle, hairspray {if required}

Time Taken:15 mins

Skill Level: Hard

Hair Length: Medium to long hair.

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Grab a section of hair about 2-3 inches from center of head, now tie the ribbon close to that section. (If you are using two-color ribbon, tie the ends close to that section. Here I’m using single color ribbon, take long length ribbon and tie the middle of it around).
  2. Then divide the section of hair into 2 parts and place the ribbon in a pattern such that (L to R): hair, ribbon, ribbon, hair.
  3. Now grab the tiny strand from right side strand & cross it under that strand, over the ribbon, under ribbon & add to the hair strand to left side.
  4. Then grab the tiny strand from left side strand & cross it under that strand, over the ribbon, under ribbon & add to the hair strand to right side. (The First stitch of the braid is complete now).
  5. Then add new hair to the strand from right side & grab tiny strand, cross it under ribbon, over the ribbon.
  6. Do the exact same thing to the other side by adding the new hair while taking the stitch.
  7. Continue till you reach end of hair.
  8. Secure the braid with elastic.

Happy Braiding..
