5 Different Fishtail Braid Hairstyles
Fishtail Braid For Beginners
A fishtail braid is actually really easy to do, but it looks very difficult. The fishtail braid is a great braid and you can easily use it in different hairstyles and it´s a perfect braid for wedding updos!
You can do the basic fishtail braid on the back of your head (like I did in the video below) or pull all your hair to one side and then do a beautiful side braid you can pull to the front. If you dont want all your hair tied back, then you can create a fishtail braid half top half down hairstyle, where you braid the up half!
Dutch Fishtail Braid For Beginners
A dutch fishtail braid is the most beautiful braid I have ever done on my channel, but it’s also the most time consuming braid ever!
So if you give the classic dutch fishtail braid a try, make sure you got plenty of time on your hands! You don´t have to start the braid as high as I did, you can start it lower down on the head, that way it’s quicker to do!
French Fishtail Braid For Beginners
If you know how to do a basic fishtail braid, then the french fishtail braid will be quite easy for you to learn.
If it´s the first time trying out the french fishtail braid and you are struggling, then take some bigger sections to get the technique of the braid down first. Then when you know the technique by heart, then take smaller sections to get the beautiful fishtail detail in the braid.
Double Dutch Fishtail Braid For Beginners
If you are tired of dutch braids and want to try something new, then you can give the double dutch fishtail braids a try!
It will take a while to do, because the sections of hair are so small, but you can stop the braid at the nape of your neck. Then either do 2 small ponytails or 2 messy buns with the rest of the hair and that will save you some time!
Double French Fishtail Braid For Beginners
A double french fishtail braid is definitely on my top five list of favorite braids.
There is just so many details in this braid and if you dont want to do 2 full braids, then the french fishtail braid looks so beautiful in updos and curly half up half downs hairstyles. You can also just end the braid at the nape of the neck and do some messy buns with the rest of the hair.
So that is how to fishtail braid for beginner with 5 different fishtail braids to choose from!
