A fun and unique twist on the classic fishtail braid!
We love fishtail braids (or fishbone, herringbone braids as some people call them) and wear them often. One of The Princess's favorite quick hairstyles for school is a messy "bohemian" side fishtail. This "criss cross fishtail" is something just a little bit different (if you are in the mood to spice things up.)
You could use this technique to make a variety of different hairstyles. As shown in the photo above, all of the hair could be gathered into a large braid on the side or back of your head. Or, you could make a smaller braid as shown in the photo below. Recently we used this braid to make a headband across the top of her head, which was super cute! I have included an example of this braid on the princess's mannequin practice head for you (below) because the details seem to show up better on blonde hair! ;) I love the alternating chevron pattern this plait creates.
