The fishtail can be easily done on the hair that are washed one or two days prior, as they are easy to handle.

Hair Texture

Most people use one or the other products before hair styling. There are various products available in the market these days. Depending on your hair texture and the look you want, you can select them for styling purpose. For example, you can use smoothening products for the polished style and texturizing spray for the fuzzy and matte look.

Let us start. Take out your comb, keep elastic ready and bring out the stylish within you. Go on to see every step of the making of a Fishtail Braid.

Start with a Ponytail

Collect your hair near the nape of the neck and create a ponytail. Tie it with the help of an elastic band that can easily be removed with the help of scissors.

Hold the Ponytail and Divide it into Two

The next step is take two even sections of the ponytail. Ensure that you do not leave any hair other than these two sections. The classic fishtail needs two sections of hair, unlike any other plait.


From the first section of the hair, take out the outer layer of the hair with the help of your fingers and overlap it on the same hair section and then add it to the opposite section of hair (similar to a regular plait). Grip your new strand of hair tightly with the opposite section, keeping both the sections in place. Now, repeat the same process with the opposite section.

Sustain Uniformity

Keep on overlapping the hair strands from one section and adding them to the opposite section one by one. Repeat the process moving towards the end of the hair. Try and grab the same amount of hair from underneath the section and overlap it properly so that the uniformity is maintained.

The Final Look

After, you have finished weaving till the place you want, secure the braid with the help of an elastic. Then, carefully remove the elastic used initially to make the ponytail, with the help of scissors. Complete the look by loosening the strands of hair on both sides to give it a rich and vivid look.
