How to Braid Your Hair in a Fishtail Braid Technique
This is how to braid your hair into a Fishtail Braid.
  1. Parting your hair down the middle of your head, you will have two sections. These two sections should be on both the left and right sides of your head. These sections should also be equal to each other in size.
  2. Collect a thin strand of hair from the left section no larger than 1.3 cm.
  3. Pulling your strand choice up and across the section that is left, move it to the right.
  4. Now, tuck in the thin strand of hair underneath the right section. These actions will combine the two sections.
  5. Next, tighten up all the loose parts by slightly pulling on the left and right sections. Ensure you tug at the same time. Otherwise, you will be in for quite a mess! Remember that the tighter a Fishtail braid is, the better. The logic behind this is that they grow wilder looking with time.
  6. Now, select a thin strand of the same size as the last strand from the right section of hair.
  7. Tugging the thin strand up and across the section to the right, move the strand to the left section.
  8. Tuck the thin strand below the left section. These actions will make it apart of the left-side section.
  9. Extend the pattern until you have met the ending point of your hair.

Tips:

There Are More Than One Type of Fishtail Braid
There are many kinds of Fishtail Braids to learn!
  1. Try to use even shorter strands as you reach further down your hair. This thinking is since your hair gets thinner towards the end of your braid. Thus, your braid will become thinner.
  2. Be sure to leave 1 inch of hair leftover at least. You want to be sure to leave this small portion of hair behind. This plan is because you will want to tie off your braid.
  3. Wrap a decorative hair tie around the end of your braid.
  4. As an extra step, if you want a wilder looking braid, gently rub your new braid in your hands.

  6. Allow the strand to drape.
  7. Now, while grabbing a bottom piece, cross it over to the brand new middle piece.

  11. Repeat the process again and again until you have the braid length you desire. You should take new pieces of the hair from above the forming braid. Then, put them into the middle of the braid. Next, gently tug the strands down. These actions cause the Waterfall Braid effect to really take on its full form.
