You might think a fishtail braid is complicated, but it is really quite simple. It is also one of the best braids for those with really long hair. Simply divide your hair into two sections, then take a thin strand of hair from the outer section to the inner section and pull it over the first part, then add to the other side of the second section. Repeat this process, alternating sides and watch as the fishtail braid starts to form. Word of advice: if you want a more intricate braid, use thinner strands.
