Choose one that will look messy and stay put.

Step 2:  Start braiding: You can pull your hair back into a loose ponytail if you feel the need to before you start the process of fishtail braiding.  Make the hair into two parts.  Pick up a small part of the hair on one side of the head, lift it and add to the other section. Then pick one small part of the hair from the other side and add it to the first side. You have to keep on doing one side and then the other till such time that you can see the fishtail design starting to come through. If your hair is thick and you want to wear it long, then you need to braid it tightly or if it is not that thick then you could braid it loosely and not so long.

Step 3: Secure the braid: Once you are done braiding to the length which you wear aiming for then you need to secure it with a scrunchy or clip of your choice. To ensure that the braid stays the way you want it to, you can lightly spray some hairspray to the whole braid.

Your fishtail braid is done and you can go out and show it off to your friends and the whole world.
