Fishtail braids are probably my favorite go-to hairstyle. Particularly on bad hair days, they make the perfect coverup! To start out, you can opt to tie the top with a hair tie or clip it in a ponytail form so all the hair keeps together neatly. You can do that and remove the clip later, or just leave your hair as is. Seeparate your hair into two equal sections, one section in each hand.
You now have two hair sections: the left section and the right section. Take a small portion of hair from the outer right side of the right section and add it to the right side of the left section. You then take a small potion of hair from the outer left side of the left section and add it to the left side of the right section. Remember to keep the hair in place with your thumbs and hands. You should still have two sections of hair in equal proportions. Continue the braiding in this same manner until you get to the end. Tie it with a hair tie and you are done!
