Hi, I'm DeeDee Black, and today I'm going to show you how to do a fishtail. A reason you might want to have a fishtail braid is so it looks fancy yet simple. The first thing you are going to do is comb the hair to the back. Once you are done with that, you want to make sure the hair is nice and smooth. You're going to take the left hair over to the right side. Then you are going to take a section of the right side and bring it over to the left side. You are going to keep repeating this motion all the way down the head. You want to make sure that you hold your thumb in place. You want to make sure there's a little pressure applied to the braid because technically with the fishtail braid, it does not have three strands so it will become loose if you don't hold it in place with your thumb. Once you get past the middle of the head now you can hold the hair into two ponytails, taking hair from the bottom left section over to the top right, then taking hair from the bottom right section over to the top left, repeating all the way to the end. Then you will secure the braid in place with a ponytail holder. Then you now have a nice simple and fancy fishtail braid.
