Wondering how to fishtail?
First, split your hair into two pieces down the middle.
Let’s start by taking a strand of hair from the left side and pulling it over the top of the left section and under the right section.
Repeat step number 2, but this time do the opposite side…So take a strand of hair from the right and put it over the right section and under the left section.
Keep repeating these steps.
When you have about a half an inch left your done! Put a hair tie in and you did it!
A few helpful hints…
