Fishtail Braids

So I fishtail braid my hair a lot and I always get requests on how to do the braid style so here it is! I used pieces of craft lace rather than hair but the theory is the same.

A fishtail is essentially a braid using two sections of hair instead of three, the third strand gets taken from the outermost part of one section and crosses to the other section.

 

Separate into 2 sections

 

 

Separate out the outermost piece

 

The outermost piece from the right side crosses over to the left section

 

The same happens using the outermost piece from the left section crossing it to the right

 

Keep going alternating sections
