Take bigger sections of Hair and braid back and down towards the nape of the neck.

You can also Pull apart the braid to make it more messy. 

Use an elastic to tie off the braid and back section of the hair into a bun.

Keep everything loose and messy.

Do a normal three strand braid with the bottom section. 

Pull it apart to your desired look. 

Wrap the fishtail braid around the normal braid and tie them off together at the end. 

Wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic to hide it. Use a bobby pin to thread the hair through the elastic to secure it.
