The Mermaid Braid
Fear not! Fishtail braids may look slightly tricky, but in reality they are a five minute hairstyle. All you need is a hair tie, and your own nimble fingers! Begin by tying your hair into a loose side ponytail. Fasten with a hair tie, and then split your hair into two parts. Select a small amount of hair from each side, and criss-cross them over one another. Repeat this for all of your hair, and you will end up with the prettiest fishtail braid! Remember to try and use similar sized bits of hair; this way your braid will be more even! I love to finish off the look with a side part, and usually fasten my fringe in place with a bobby pin.
