We love the look of fishtail braids! The braided hairstyles are timeless and can always make you look youthful and chic. The fishtail braid, also known as the herringbone or fishbone braid, looks elaborate and time-consuming. But here’s a secret: it’s surprisingly easy to do, and will become a go-to favorite for rushed mornings, especially if you have long hair. Here’s how to do it.
For the perfect fishtail braid, follow these steps:
1. Separate: Take two equal sections of hair and pull a skinny strand from the outside of one section.
2. Cross Over : Cross the skinny strand over the other section of hair.
3. Merge: Join the skinny strand to the hair in that section and pull tight.
4. Repeat: Now repeat the same motions with a skinny strand from the outside of the other section until you’ve created an extended “x” pattern.
