The fishtail braids can be exotic and elegant at the same time.

I used small pieces to make this fishtail braid myself. There are quite a few online tutorials. Starting the fishtail braid is a little tricky, but with practice, it is a "piece of cake." The brown fishtail braid above was about my sixth practice round. I have mastered three techniques of fishtail braiding now.
1) Chunky (big pieces)
2) Non-chunky (small pieces)
3) Chunky with Extreme tension
In the picture below, I am showing my looser fishtail on the left and the DVD cover of the tighter, chunkier fishtail updo on the right.
