Fish tail braids are never out of fashion and can be styled in more than one way. In it’s standard form the fishtail is a simple and charming alternative to a conventional braid or even a pony tail, but there are plenty of ways to dress up your braid. You can pin your fishtail up across the top of your head if you wish to look like a cast member from the sound of music or you can back comb your braid for a more edgy or funky look.
The good news you don’t need to be a professional hair stylist to perfect the fishtail. With a little practice you will find the fishtail braid an easy go-to hair style when you want something different but don’t have time or can’t be bothered with a formal up style. The one and most obvious difference over the traditional french braid is the fact that the hair is only separated into two sections instead of three. Don’t be fooled, You will still need some dextrous fingers to get the look your after. Ry stylists from the recreate yourself salon have made this helpful info graphic to demonstrate a quick and easy technique to create a beautiful fishtail braid.
Our stylist tip is that if your hair is to clean it can cause the braid to drop so add some hair spray or texture wax to your hair before you begin.
