Make a center part in your hair while dry. If you have bangs, keep them out.
Take a section from the ear to the front of the hair. Clip away the remainder of the hair.
Start on the scalp braid (cornrow) and continue it into a regular three-strand braid.
Tie off the end with an elastic or back-comb with hairspray.
Repeat on the other side.
Back comb the crown of the remaining hair to add height.
Split the remainder of the hair in half and secure each with a hair bungee. This will help keep the fishbraid tight.
Start a fishtail braid, taking small sections at a time. Secure the end with elastic. Repeat on the other side.
Unhook the bungee and loosen up the fishtail braids.
Connect the three-strand braid to the fishtail braid with hairpins at the end. Make sure each braid is on either side of the ear to expose the ear.
Finish off with hairspray. Easily whip your hair back and forth.
