Fishtail braids are a fun, cute, and easy alternative to regular french or dutch braids. They may look hard to do but they're not, as soon as you learn you can do them all the time with ease.
(my friend kayonia's hair.)
Step one: Gather hair back take a small section form the crown of head, seperate into two equal sections. Cross the left over the right.
Step two: Take a section of hair from the left side and cross it over to the right. Now take hair form the right and cross it over to the left. Continue untill there is no more new hair to grab.
Step three: When there is no more new hair to take form the scalp, continue crossing hair over from each side untill you reach the bottom of braid. Now you have a beautiful fishtail braid!
Tip: If you have relaxed, straight, or a looser textured hair type you might have to put a rubber band or hair clip on the end to keep it from unraveling.(^_^).
