Fishtail Braid Pin Back Hairstyle

Fishtail Braid Hairstyle, Taught By ~ The Princess!

This fishtail braid (or fishbone - herringbone braid) "pin back" is a very quick and easy way to keep your bangs out of your face (while adding some style) when you want to leave your hair down. Our 9 yr old Princess came up with this video idea and cute hairstyle all on her own!

I really love how she made the braid loose with the bobby pins exposed for some "bohemian flair!" If you want an even more disheveled looking braid, you could stretch out the outside edge of the strands before pinning the braid back.

As shown in the hairstyle video below, The Princess also came up with a great idea to help start the fishtail braid in an easier way.  She's a very smart girl if I must say so myself!

This braided hairstyle should work great with short hair, medium hair, or long hair.
