Beyonce served up this fishtail in the breathtakingly gorgeous spread for her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour booklet. In looks that range from old world vampire to 80’s soul singer, the star gave us the absolute best in beauty.

To rock a natural hair fishtail, here’s what you should remember:

1. Essentially, it’s an underbraid. You’re probably used to your classic over-braid, but the charm of the fishtail is that its unique pattern is created by braiding under instead of over.

2. It can be used as a hair accessory. You don’t have to have long hair to rock the fishtail. You can use the look to have a fishtail bang or a fishtail up the nape of your neck with cascading curls.

3. Messy is fab. This look actually looks even better when it’s a bit disheveled. Tease your tresses a bit for volume, then braid.
