3. Bring this strand from the left over to the other half of hair on the right and hold it in place to the right half of the hair.
4. Do the same on the right side, separating a smaller piece from the back side of the right hair and bringing it over to the left. This should form what looks like an “x” between the two halves of hair.
5. Repeat steps  2 through 4, pulling more and more small strands from the left and right side to make more “x’s” Keep working your way from the back to the front of the halves of hair with the smaller strands. Pull the strands tight so that the criss-crossing of the strands is clean.

 

 

6. Work your way down your hair with these “x’s” until you reach the end. Tie off with a hair band and you are Fishtailin’ like  pro!
