HERE IS A TIP! Make sure to keep tightening the braid, otherwise it will fall too much
Step 19: Continue fishtail all the way down and secure with a pony tail holder.
Step 20: Towards the bottom of the fishtail braid where you stopped pulling pieces from the hair that was hanging down may be a little too loose. Using bobby pins clean up any loose hairs that you want tucked in.
