Fishytail braids

Last Sunday, I decided to finally learn how to do a fishytail braid cause I have nothing better to do, obviously HEH You can google up if you have no idea what a fishytail braid is, it's actually called fishtail braid but I purposely added the y to make it sounds cuter (x

Anyways, it's not really the new trend or something, it's been a while since last year I think. I searched for tutorial videos on youtube (duh!) and found this video which shows the easier version of fishtail braid and she explains it quite clearly. It turned out to be way easier than I thought! I find other videos either to fast for me to catch up (maybe it's just me who is slow to pick up HAHA) or it's only video without anyone speaking, weird much. So here goes!

And showing you my #1 attempt on fishytail braid;
..which ended up looking like the normal french braid T_T So the trick is to take smaller chunks of hair to cross over, geddit geddit? Btw, I like how my hair looks so soft here.

TIP: Do practise in front of a mirror, it makes things easier and faster, at least for me (: 
Then, it gets better with the #2 attempt! Like they always said, practice makes perfect :D I can see the difference, can you? 
Last but not least, my #3 attempt and I'm loving it! 
Nice not? ( ´▽`)
But how come it still doesn't look like the one in the video? HMPHHH D:
Maybe cause I don't have thick hair and I wish I have highlights then the braid would look pretty!
And this is me, going out with the fishytail braid and ignore my ugly fringe that is not behaving that day.

So do try out the fishtail braids and show it to me :D It's so easy, you can even have style it on a daily basis and say goodbye to the plain ol' french braid ~

Hope y'all are enjoying your holidays as much as I do!ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ Till then,
