Ariel - Fishtail braid

by 18.9.13

A current hair trend is the fishtail braid. I've actually never tried it, because it looked too complicated. Aside from curling my hair, I cannot do much. I can't even do the french braid.

Well I tell you that it is much easier than it looks, however it does need some practice. I've only mastered the side fishtail braid so far. I find that it easier because I can see what I am doing. 

Here is a YouTube tutorial that is amazing and helped me create the fishtail braid that you see on the pictures. 


Has any of you mastered the technique?

  6. I really like this kind of hairstyle, but it's always too difficult to me. I need to ask my friend to make it on my hair.

    Sorry, maybe it's hmm, confident question, but... have you done something with your lips? They look bigger.

  8. Hello dear Simone :)
    Hey it looks great on you! But beside this braid, the french braid isn´t so complicate. Just try it again ;) If you like, you find some nice "how to do" stuff for braids and other styles for long hair on http://kupferzopf.com/flechtfrisuren/tipps_flechtfrisuren.html . She has so great Styles there and it´s so easy explained! I have very long hair and it´s no problem doing the french braid or maybe a dutch braid.
    I´ve worn the fishtail braid several times, i like it much ;)I wish you a great evening :)

  9. I love both braids, but I'm not so good at doing them
    Anyway some months ago I started practising and I'm getting better. Is not too complicated, but it isn't easy neither :P

  11. Looks very good, Simone. :-)
    Well I failed on the fishtail braid so I gave it up. For me too the french braid doesn't work any longer just as a normal pony tail doesn't work for my hair. I think these are the kind of problems you get, when your hair grows 1 meter long...

    Kisses and hugs,
    Steffi <3

  13. This looks very good already :)
    I've been practicing the Fishtail braid for some time now, as well as the French and Dutch braid.
    My hair has jsut the length for it but I almost break my arms everytime I reach below neck level so I have to put it over one shoulder to go on, what makes the braid look uneven in the end... I haven't solved the issue yet but I'll keep on trying :)

    Kissses :*

  18. Simone, could you do more posts like this one, with examples of hairstyle tutorials? I'm sure a lot of people will like it. I have tried to do some hairstyles and tricks from http://thebeautydepartment.com, but my hair always ends up in a mess :) the side fishtail looks easier though, I will try it!

  19. Ziet er super mooi uit. Ik kan echt helemaal niks met mijn haar. Ik ben zo'n kluns in haar dingen, haha. Misschien raar dat ik dit zeg, maar ik heb een artikel over jouw voormalige lipstick MAC Chatterbox geschreven; http://beautyshift.nl/?p=494 Misschien dat je het leuk vind.
