If you loved the Braid, then you’ll be crazy about the Fishtail.
P.S. Wear with a sense of humour!
As braids continue to be one of this season’s hottest hair trends, it’s the Fishtail that is causing all the hype. The hottest of hair braids to have taken the catwalk, red-carpet, highstreet…well just about everywhere by storm, the Fishtail is also a firm favourite amongst some of the most glamorous Hollywood starlets. And now you can have it too!
Elaborate and quirky yet quick and easy to do, the Fishtail is the perfect accessory for any style!
Tip: Work mousse into wet hair before drying to creat texture. Use sea salt spray or Schwarzkopf ‘s Dust it to create friction in the hair, making it easier to work with.

Divide your hair into two large sections
Pull a thick strand of hair from the outside of the first section over itself, and add it to the second section.
Pull a skinny strand of hair out from the outside of the second section, and add it to the first section.
Make it as loose or as tight as you want it. Keep repeating the steps until you reach the end of your hair (ref: http://www.wikihow.com/Fishtail-Braid)
Although this look works better on longer hair that doesn’t mean you can’t fake it with some clip in extensions for added length
The beauty of the Fishtail is that is doesn’t have to be perfect! The messier the better.
Like with the plait, you can gently tease bits from either side to create a more mussed up look
Remember: Spray some hairspray into your hands and rub over your plait to get that perfect bed head result every time
Have fun experimenting! x
