Fall is here us and as we are expecting snow here in Denver, it is just a reminder of the Holidays are upon us and festive hairstyles are in need! One of the more chic and classy hair styles that will surely wow this holiday season will be the fishtail braid. It is sometimes called the herringbone or fishbone and this style looks deceptively complicated but that could not be further from the truth.
Stylish, sexy, and flirty it can be a side braid, straight to the back or even tucked into an updo. The bottom line is it is versatile but always a winning style and will look stunning on all types of natural hair! Let’s face it…some naturals feel so limited with their tresses and feel certain styles cannot be achieved on coily, curly or even Loc’d hair. I’m here to show you 4 variations of the fishtail braid on Loc’d, curly, box braided and straight natural hair that should change your mind!
