The fishtail braid has quickly become the modern day twist on braids. By simply adding this style to a low bun, a quick hairstyle can become an elegant up-do in minutes. Melissa Cook, contributor of Latest-Hairstyles.com, expresses her love for this fad: “Fishtail braids continue to be all the rage right now and this hairstyle features two of them.” You can dress it up for a wedding, or sport a casual look for a brunch date with your girls–either way, compliments are sure to come your way. “This fishtail wrapped up-do is quick and easy once you get the braiding part down, and the perfect hairstyle to keep in your beauty repertoire. This look is both trendy and chic, and luckily it looks trickier than it actually is to create!” Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to chic hairstyle heaven.

With a part on the right side, separate off a portion of hair from the part down to the left ear. Clip off the back portion of hair with an alligator clip.

Step 2

Pick up a section of hair near the part and begin a fishtail French braid. This is done by dividing the section into two halves and crossing small sections of hair underneath to the opposite side while incorporating hair into the braid each time.

Step 3

When all of the hair is brought into the braid, finish braiding the section down into a regular fishtail braid.

Step 4
