CC Beauty Live: The Fishtail Braid

I know you’ve all seen the fishtail braid everywhere in fashion, on celebs, and even on your favorite TV shows. It’s super stylish and chic, but it looks pretty complicated. Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s actually really easy! The thing with braids is they look really difficult to master, but they aren’t. Sneaky.

In this video, I’m showing you my breakdown of a fishtail braid in five minutes! All it takes is some patience and practice. And maybe a shot to kill your nerves. Or for fun.
