HOTD - Fishtail Braids

Fishtail braids are the in thing this spring / summer. They are a great alternative to a plait, especially if you feel plaits make you look younger!. I find they are a great way to wear my hair to work as the fishtail braid looks very sophisicated.


These braids are very easy! The picture below shows how to achieve them.

You split your hair into 2 sections, and take a small piece from the outside of each section to cross over each other.

This braid encyclopedia video from Letsmakeitup1 on YouTube is also very helpful for all types of braids! (Skip to 4:36 to see the fishtail braid tutorial)

  1. i love fishtails! my hair always comes out from the braid though:(


    1. Hi Jade, yes I found that too. I think the trick is to ensure you are making the braid really tight, and also try taking thinner sections from each side, especially if you have layers :)
