How To Do The Long Fishtail Braid Hairstyle

When it comes to your wedding, your hairstyle is kind of a big deal. It’s very important how you want to wear your hair as there are so many different styles. Up, down, ponytail, waves, straight, curly, bun, braids – the list goes on. It’s best to choose a hairstyle that is easy and won’t constantly be in your face. Trust us you’ll want to show off your beautiful makeup too. It’s better to choose a style that you can easily keep together for the whole day and night. Most brides have a hard time keeping their hair put together for the whole day, due to the hustle and bustle that is being the bride. In six easy steps, we teach you how to do the long fishtail braid hairstyle that is both elegant yet sophisticated.

The Fishtail Braid How To


1. Start with loose curls and natural texture for a more messier braid, or brush your hair out first for a smoother look.

2. Then, you will create a deep side part and pull all your hair over to one side.

3. Piece your hair into two ponytails, and take a piece from the first side and pass it to the second side.

4. Next, take a piece from the second side and pass it back to the first side. 

5. Continue taking even sections of your hair until the braid is finished and wrap it with a clear elastic.

6. Gently, pull on the pieces of the braid to loosen it to your desired size.

Tip: To get a more textured braid, it’s best to do the braid when your hair hasn’t been washed in one-two days.

This style is perfect for an adult, but for kids it’s even better. Split a high pony tail into two sections, twist them together into a relaxed bun, and add a faux bloom to make it extra pretty.

With a romantic bride look, your hair and makeup will have a classic tone to it. but not without some added shine! Think soft waves and loose curls for the romantic bride look. For an up-do, its best to have your hair loose and curled but slightly unstructured. A bridal headband also makes for a perfect accessory. Sultry eyes and a pouty lip are perfect for the romantic bride. Darker shimmer colors on the eyes and a nice gloss should be the look you want to achieve.

Glam Bride

A glam bride has a more dramatic makeup and hair look, but still beautiful for your big day. The makeup will be slightly heavier and your hair would require more effort and styling. Indoor weddings are a bonus for this type of wedding look as they offer the best atmosphere for longevity. You can achieve this look with short or long hair. Clean and sleek styles or very polished curls are your go-to when creating this glam look. A high up-do or low bun is also acceptable to achieve the look. The eyes are the main focus of this look, using false lashes that extend in the outer corners will give you a cat-eye appearance that will make your eyes appear larger – but still pretty. Another option is the smokey-eye style paired with a light or nude lip.
