How to create a french fishtail braid... inside out! I guess you could call this a "dutch fishtail?"Side Swept Fishtail Braid Tutorial
This fishtail, fishbone, or herringbone braid can be used to create many different hairstyles including: Casual, bohemian, beachy type hair, as well as elegant updos for special occasions. To enhance this braid, the edges can be stretched (as shown in our pictures and video) creating a more voluminous and disheveled fishtail. It seems that messy and deconstructed braids are very popular and trendy hairstyles among teens, tweens, and adults right now.
For church one Sunday, we opted to use this braid to create a fishtail updo, which was made by wrapping the braid up into a side bun and securing with couple of bobby pins. The princess and I absolutely love this cute hairstyle and plan to use it again for an upcoming wedding. I wish my hair was long enough and I would be wearing it as well!
How to make an inside out fishtail braid video tutorial:
While filming this tutorial, I took larger strands than I normally would (to save time) and the braid didn't turn out quite as intricate or "fishtaily" as I would have liked. If thick strands are taken, the braid ends up looking more like a regular 3 strand dutch braid and isn't quite as interesting. The pictures we used throughout this post were taken on a different day, and show how the braid will look with smaller strands taken (which is a little more time consuming.)
