How to Create a Fish Tail Braid

by Anne Chung

Watch this guide to learn how to do a cute, unique fishtail braid.


Step 1

Start by brushing your hair and make sure there are no tangles!

Step 2

Divide your hair into 2 sections at the back or the side. Please note that Fishtails can be difficult to do with short/layered hair!

Step 3

Start by getting a small piece of hair and crossing it over to the opposite side then do the same for the other side.

Step 4

Fishtails can be quite complicated at first so I added a video, once you get use to it it's simple!

Step 5

Once you have it at the length you like secure it with a hair tie.

Step 6

For a messier look loosen the braid by tugging lightly at the sides.

Step 7

To make sure your hair at the side doesn't come loose place bobby pins at the side.

Step 8

Add a cute accessory to complete this hairstyle!

Step 9

And there you have your Fishtail! I hope you enjoyed this guide.
