The Fishtail Braid How To


1. Start with loose curls and natural texture for a more messier braid, or brush your hair out first for a smoother look.

2. Then, you will create a deep side part and pull all your hair over to one side.

3. Piece your hair into two ponytails, and take a piece from the first side and pass it to the second side.

4. Next, take a piece from the second side and pass it back to the first side. 

5. Continue taking even sections of your hair until the braid is finished and wrap it with a clear elastic.

6. Gently, pull on the pieces of the braid to loosen it to your desired size.

Tip: To get a more textured braid, it’s best to do the braid when your hair hasn’t been washed in one-two days.
