How to do Fishtails on Loc’d Hair – Dreadlocks Hairstyle

Fishtails are a popular dreadlocks hairstyle. They can be done as one big tail or in multiple sections in a cornrow/canerow-like style or in a french braid style as pictured above.

Check out the demonstration by Hairlocs by Arlette below.

If you can’t see the video, use the following written instructions to create a fishtail braid:
  1.  Put your hair into four sections.
  2. Overlap the right-most section over the closest two sections.
  3. Overlap the left-most section of locs over the closest two sections.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and three until you get to the end.
  5. At the end, you will most likely need to secure your locks with a rubber band.


I hope you try this style. Enjoy!
