I wish my hair was long enough to wear one!

These are so innovative and neat looking, and they lend themselves well to a variety of occasions.

They look pretty hard to do, but don’t worry – here are some tips for creating a fishtail braid that will make it incredibly easy!

1. Make It Smooth

Tangles can pop up at a moment’s notice for both types as hair, so you want to do a good job combing or brushing.

You might even want to try a detangling product.
