You can follow a model. Like a reference picture.

I can try putting up a tutorial later, but it wont be very good u__u


But, i recommend looking at dolphin/whale tails, because they are pretty much the tails.
Also, the scales, it depends whether you want to do realism or cartoon.

scales are pretty easy if you make little C's or U's o_o over and over again..or if you
just shade correctly it'll work out pretty well. Um here, I'll post some Deviantart
tutorials.

and wet hair kinda looks like this tut:

but wet hair tends to stick to your face and stuff XD Just try wetting your hair and
observe :3 that might help as well.

Lets see...

You don't need scales that much. Just a few clumps here and there.
And for hair, make the lines more stringy. Like this maybe?

I drew this real fast on omgme.com so don't blame me.
