Wedding Hair: Fishtail Braids!

Braids, Braids Braids!  This versatile hairstyle can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.  So many brides are choosing to wear wedding braids and one of the most popular braids is the fishtail braid.  To me, it takes the simple braid and dresses it up making it perfect for wedding hair.

This type of braid lends itself to a messy yet put together look blending the formalness of the bridal gown with a more relaxed hairstyle.

Although this may look easy to do, I would suggest hiring someone or asking someone comfortable doing this kind of braid for the day of the wedding.  Make sure to have that same person do a trial run to make sure you like the fishtail braid with your wedding dress.

Don’t worry if your hair isn’t long enough!  So many web sites, like, are selling faux fishtail braids.  Takes some of the worry out of making the perfect fishtail braid.  Just clip in and go!

Below are some unique ways to incorporate a fishtail braid.  I love the half up and half down hairstyle with the fishtail braid down the back.  It gives an element of surprise when you turn around.
