There are many different styles of hair braids. To make a fishtail braid, first divide the hair you're going to braid into two sections rather than three like a traditional braid. Pull a small part of one section and place it over the top of the other section, then pull a small part from the outside of that section and put it over the top of the first section. Continue this braiding process until you reach the ends of the hair. Typically, fishtail braids look a bit messy, so loose strands are acceptable.
Rope braids, another type of braid, produce a sleek style. Pull hair back into a ponytail and split in into two sections. Then, twist each section and cross the twisted sections over each other until the entire ponytail is braided.
Crown braids create a romantic and whimsical look. Simply part the hair down the middle all the way to the neck, split into two low pigtails and braid each pigtail. Then wrap each pigtail around your head into a crown and pin in place.Learn more about Hairstyles
