Step 1: Make sure hair is well brushed and ready for action.
Step 2: Divide hair into two parts! (Usually with a normal braid you divide the hair into three but for the fishtail it is two, you'll see why).
Step 3: Take both chunks of hair in your hands, you grab a small piece of hair from the under part of one side. Let's say, the left side.
Step 4: Take that little piece you picked out from the bunch, and bring it over and around the left side to join it with the right side. It will belong there now and will stay there.
Step 5: Do the same thing with the right side, grabbing a little piece of the under part of the right side to join it with the left. Remember to grab it under and bring it over to the other side.
Step 6: After a while you will start to see the fruits of your labor! Once you are finished, you can add a hair tie.
Step 7: If desired, begin to pull the sides of braid outwards. Don't worry, there are so many tiny strands connected - it won't fall out. Continue to pull at the pieces to make the braid more full and less perfect!
Go for it and be amazed!
