Martha Stewart Living – Braid Basics

I was recently asked to illustrate step-by-step instructions for 4 different types of braids in the August 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living.  It was a fun change of pace for me, after weeks of sitting in my studio painting.

I have to say though, I was able to figure out how the braids were completed enough to draw each step, but I have yet to personally master a successful fishtail braid.  Hopefully her readers have better luck than I did!

    The picture of the fishtail braid looks just lovely. However I’ve been braiding my hair forever and I always called that braid a “Herringbone” braid. Unlike you I separate the hair the same way, but I I bring the hair UNDER instead of over. It works every time. Check it out……………………………Colleen
