There are a few steps one should remember when learning how do you make a fishtail braid. First, take your time. Another thing to remember is that perfection is not necessarily a goal. The imperfections present in a fishtail braid is what gives it character.

What is a flat twist?
Now we will explain what is a flat twist. This hairstyle is similar to cornrows, which uses three strands, but is easier than cornrows due to only using two strands in the twist.
Begin with parting the hair at the hairline to the nape and start with small sections of hair. Start twisting the hair one strand over the other and incorporate more hair from that section as you progress.
When you reach the point where the hair is hanging loose and is no longer next to the scalp, secure the hair here while you complete the twist throughout the length. Repeat this process over the entire scalp and admire the lovely twist hairstyle.
There are also flat twist hairstyles that lie close to the scalp and aren’t as rounded as others are.
