Side Braid, Twist Wrapped Fishtail Hairstyle Tutorial

A Fishtail (or Fishbone) Braid Hairstyle... with a twist.

We seem to be on a fishtail braiding kick at our house lately!  Today's tutorial is another fun way to spice up the popular and trendy fishbone braid, with a little something extra.  If you happened to see last week's tutorial (which can be found here:  Criss Cross Fishtail Braid) you might remember, it was also a unique variation of a fishtail braid.

This is a great hairstyle for school or work, as it is pretty quick to create, but still looks like you put some effort into it.  :)  The concept of wrapping a braid around another braid isn't anything new, but I absolutely love this combination of a fishtail and a twist braid (or rope braid) together. Very intricate looking.  This braid almost reminds me of something you might see in Medieval times, at a Renaissance Faire, or on a Princess!

We opted for a side braid this time, but this braid could also be placed at the center of your head if you prefer. Of course, if you wanted to... you could actually use ribbon, rope, leather, or other material to wrap around the braid as well.
