How to Fishtail
Time: 4-7 minutes
For long/medium hair
Step 1- Split your hair into two and make sure they’re the same size.
Step 2- Take a small strand from the “outside” of either side and put it into the “inside” of the opposite one.
Step 3- Take a small strand from the side you didn’t take hair from and put it in the “inside” of the opposite one.
Step 4- Repeat steps 2 & 3 until you can fishtail any more hair.
Step 5- Secure with a hair tie
Step 6- I like to have my fishtails not so tight so I pull it gently on each side.
- Takes a lot longer than a regular braid
- When you first start the fishtail, you won’t be able to see the actual fishtail until later.
- The smaller the strand of hair, the longer it will take to make the fishtail, but it will be more detailed.
