Fishtail Braid Boho Hairstyle Video

A fishtail braid looks incredibly complicated and intricate but, once you get the hang of it, the fishtail braid can be an incredibly simple hairstyle to do yourself. Don’t be overfaced, the fishtail braid is one of my favourites to style, it looks high maintenance but isn’t and is a perfect look, especially if your hair isn’t freshly washed.

Unlike a dutch or french braid the fishtail braid can be done quickly and effectively on your own hair without much practice. I really like to wear a fishtail braid is a boho hairstyle, pulling it out, fluffing it up and making it a little messy. It is a perfect look for summer and gives even the thinnest haired girls a thick Elsa worthy braid.

In this short video I share with you how I create this boho hairstyle, full and thick double/pigtail fishtail braids with a few tips and tricks on how to make it easier for yourself. These loose fishtail braids look effective on mid to long hair and are beautiful kept neat for school, college, work, occasions or made full and thick for festivals, parties or events!
