The concept of the fishtail braid might seem complicated, but with our step-by-step guide, you can master this in TEN minutes flat. Yes, girls, this is the easiest fishtail braid tutorial ever! Step 1: Brush your hair nicely, especially the roots. Dab on a little bit of styling gel to keep the hair in place. image3 Step 2: Gather your hair to one side. Either left or right, and brush them again.  Wrap them in a rubber band. image4 Step 3: Section the gathered hair into two divisions. Unlike the traditional plait, fishtail uses only two divisions of hair. Let’s call them A and B. image5 Step 4: Read this carefully, ladies! Take a section of hair from the section closest to your ear, say division B. Now take the section and add it to the division of hair away from your hair, A.
