I had curled my hair yesterday in some loose waves so today I planned a fishtail. It would only work if i had some texture in it. My hair is bone straight ultra fine and thin. I pulled my hair to the side and fish tailed. Then after applying the elastic I pulled on strands to loosen the braid and make it messy. I pulled hair around my face down and pinned where I needed. Add some awesome earrings you have been wanting to show off and your done!
