The Fishtail Braid

Recently I've been thinking about adding the fishtail braid into my hairstyle repertoire. I have seen lots of pictures floating around Pinterest and other blogs with different ways to wear this braid and I love the variety! I really like the messy look and also the half-up braid look. It seems a little tricky so I watched this video of Lauren Conrad demonstrating how to fishtail braid your own hair.

1. Love all the colors int his messy fishtail from the Free People September Catalog (page 10).

2. Rihanna's messy fishtail in this pin from this post on Lipstick Stars and Killer Heels. 

3. Love this pretty half-up look in this pin from this we♥it post. 

4. Another pretty half-up look in this pin from this Style Craze article.

5. The messy side fishtail braid in this pin from this post on Become Gorgeous.

6. How pretty is this braided half-up look in this pin from Makeup Creations Tumblr?

I love all these ideas and I'm pretty inspired to try some! Now to practice... 

Have a great Thursday,


  1. omg I LOVE fishtail braids. They are the cutest ever! I can't do them although I've tried many times, so I have my sister and friends do them for me. If I could get it right, I'd rock one every day. It's gonna look so cute on you!

  2. What a great roundup. I like the coloured strands woven through the fishtail in the first photo. I'd love to see your take on the style!

  3. Fishtail braids are lovely, and they really aren't hard to do, either. They work best on really long, straight hair without short layers (exactly opposite of my hair), but it looks like you have the perfect hair for them!
