a new type of braid
I had never heard of, much less seen, a fishtail braid until last year. I found some videos on YouTube on how to create one.
A traditional braid requires three same-size strands of hair. A fishtail requires four--two fat and two thin. I attempted to create a fishtail on myself but my hair is too thin and fine, so I tried braiding some of my dolls' hair.
This is what a fishtail looks like.
