When starting a fishtail braid, put your hair in a low pony tail with a hair tie. Make your hair in two sections. Take a piece of hair from one side transfer it to the other side. Keep doing that till you get to the bottom and put another hair tie at the bottom. Take your first hair tie out. Now you have a beautiful fishtail braid. If you have any question just let me know.
*If you want a smooth looking braid just brush your hair out. For a more messy look don’t brush your hair.*
