  3. Just like with pigtails, divide your hair into two sections at the base of your head.
  4. Braid each hair bundle using the fishtail technique. To do so, split each section into two equal parts. Using your finger, select a thin strand of hair from the most outer section and pull it over to the other section. A lot simpler than the three-strand braid.
  5. Repeat this process until the hair is braided to your liking. Once that’s done, tie it with an elastic. It’s preferable to use thin clear elastics so they don’t steal focus away from your new hairstyle.

  7. Finally, use a veil of hairspray on your head. That way, you’re sure to keep your fishtail braids all day.
