Fishtail Braids - how to create the Orlando Pita New York Fashion Week Runway Look at home!

I've been admiring these braids on everyone from Lauren Conrad to Serena on Gossip Girl - did you know they were called fishtail braids?  I didn't, but they sure do make me wish I had long hair so I could have me some!  To achieve the look for the Doo.Ri show, they used a T3 SinglePass Style Iron - $176 and T3 + Orlando Pita Elevate Volumizing Spray - $20.90 - both available at Sephora.  Orlando has been kind enough to share the technique - so in this case, do try this at home!
And just in case you do better with written directions, rather than pictures, here's the braid step-by-step:
