The best fishtail braid comes out from the longest of hair. Although it looks pretty complex, with a little practice you can become a pro in no time. For starters, divide your hair into 2 sections. Then separate a thin strand of hair from the first part’s outer section. This can be either left or right, depends on which is more comfortable to you. Then pull this strand of hair over the first part and finish it under the second section which is on the other side. Then repeat this process on this other side and keep alternating this process till the beautiful fishtail takes form. To make a more intricate braid, make the strand as thin as possible.
