Free People Really Wants You To Learn How To Fishtail Braid

So, we know we've gone over how to fishtail braid with you guys quite a few times, but we get it — that ish ain't easy. Starting them off, in particular always manages to scramble our brains — you put this piece over which one and replace it with what now?
Bless the kind souls at Free People, who created this super-easy-to-follow video demonstrating exactly how to do that Holy Grail of braids. In painstaking detail and super-clear close-ups — great for those visual learners out there — they show you exactly how to craft this coiff at home. Bonus: Since this video was done to help promote their "Girls On Bikes" spring catalog, this particular hairstyle also happens to be the perfect 'do to wear under a helmet. Safety first, people!
