When you seem to have finally learnt all the possible ways of hair braiding, creative hair stylists suggest completely different, new techniques of achieving uniquely braided hairstyles that simply dazzle! If fishtail braiding was something innovative and difficult to achieve some time ago, it has now become quite ordinary and no less surprising. So here comes the bow braid to bring a high dose of girlishness and cuteness to your daily and special occasion looks. If you just thought you could never manage to bow braid your hair, we dare to say you are mistaken! Check out our bow hair braid tutorial and learn the easy technique of creative innovative hairstyles!
How to Style Bow Hair Braids
The most important factor for achieving bow braids is to have long hair. In case you have medium hair, we suggest using clip-in hair extensions.
Brush your hair smoothly and bring it to one side. Take a small section of hair and divide it into four equal strands, trying to create regular four-strand braids. The technique is very simple. You need to take strand number one and bring it under strand two and three to the right. Then reverse the direction and bring it over strand three to the left. Now, grab strand four, pass it behind strand two and strand three to the left and then over strand two to the right. Carefully repeat the steps until you have your four-strand braid completely done. As you finish it, pull the edges of the braid to make it bigger and chicer. Secure the tail of the braid with an elastic band.
Surely for the bow braid, you can also do a regular three-strand braid, however, a four-strand one makes a more reliable base for the bow braid, besides it looks more luxurious.
Now, we have reached the bow braiding part, for which you need a regular U-shaped hair pin. Insert the bobby pin into your braid. Take a small section of the loose hair, make a loop with it and slip it into the bobby pin. You can make the loop as big as you want your bow braid to be. Then just pull the hair pin back, bringing the half of the loop to the other side of your braid. Arrange the bow and continue doing this, until you reach the end of your braided tail.
As you see styling a bow braid isn’t something too difficult. You just need to move your fingers more masterfully to get a uniform look. Give it a try today and surprise your friends with your new one-of-a-kind hairstyle!

On the days when you seem to no longer have ideas for creative hairstyling, braids can be the best remedies! It’s hard to ever get tired of braided hairstyles, since they always look fun, innovative and feminine, capable of injecting a romantic and innocent touch to your daily and special occasion looks.

Today, we suggest incorporating two braided styles into one single chic updo that is sure to make heads turn! Have a nosey at the gorgeous double crown braid tutorial featuring an ordinary French braid and a fishtail one!
To style a double crown braided updo with two styles of braids, you’ll need some elastic bands, bobby pins and a little practice in plating braids. Start on clean hair. Split the hair into two equal parts and curl it with a curling iron to give extra texture to the final look. Now, divide the two parts of the hair into other two halves and start braiding an ordinary French braid above your ear. When you finish braiding it, secure the tail with an elastic band and gently pull the edges for making it bigger and fluffier. Bring the first braid above your head and pin it with some bobby pins. Repeat the same process on the other side of the head.
As you are done with the ordinary French braids, it’s time to be more creative and style fishtail braids. Take the remaining half of your hair from one side of the head and divide it into two equal parts. Take a small strand of hair from the outer side of the right part and cross it to the left side. Afterwards, take a small strand of hair from the outer part of the left part of the hair and bring it to the right side. You have to repeat the same action, until you get the complete fishtail braid. This is a little bit more time-consuming process. As you get your first fishtail braid, repeat the same process on the other remaining half of the hair. When you have both the fishtail braids, gently pull the edges for a more textured look and bring them above your head, securing them in the place with bobby pins.
Your double crown braided updo with French and fishtail braids is done! Wear it to work, to a party or just every day to look more polished and feminine!

And who said that you can’t look glamorous and fancy with braided hair? Actually braided hair if styled in an unconventional way can make your appearance original and eye-striking. Doing a creative take over the classical style, mixing a few ideas and there you go! A crazy and beautiful do worth trying for a red-carpet-like look! Since there are no boundaries, when it comes to braided hairstyles, we suggest that you check out these easy, yet intricate braided hairstyle tutorials below!
The best hair texture for the style will be thick hair. So if you don’t have such hair, it will be good to try out adding a few layers of hair extensions to make the style more effective. Then you can go with fingers teasing your hair for more volume.
You start separating four strands of hair. Three of the strands will be used for making a regular-like strand, while the forth one will be left on the side. The first three strands should be made into a regular French three-strand braid. But with every step you need to leave a small section from the strand that goes to the right. You need to make the braid all the way to the end securing it with an elastic band. When done making the braid, you should try loosening the strands of hair with fingers to make the braid look fuller. This will also add a more elegant look to the braid.
After you’re done with the first braid, you need to divide the left section of hair into three small strands and start making another regular braid. This braid will be attached to the first one with a nice trick. When you reach the level of the first braid, you will have to add the leftover small sections of hair to the middle strand of the new braid. Just make sure that you get the section tightly attached to the middle section so that there will be no gap between the first and second braids. As a final result you will get two interrelating braids.
Another variation for the hairstyle will be the combination of a typical braid and twisted braid. You start up creating the same type of first braid leaving small section from the right strand. The left forth section should be divided into two sections, which need to be first twisted away from the face and then twisted with each other. Reaching the leftover small sections, you will have to add the small sections to your twists. First you should add it to the first twist, then with the second one. Similar to the first option, you need to make the connection of the braids as tight as possible to avoid gaps in between. This time you will get a braid with interrelated twist.
Both braided hairstyles are stylish and appealing, you just need to choose the one fitting your personal taste.

Fishtail braids are rather easy to make, despite their complex and rich look. The trend is popular, as you can always style a fishtail braid and look great even without having enough time in the morning for hair styling. If you want to look more creative and special wearing fishtail braids, you can always get crazy and come up with interesting hairdos that combine fishtail braids. This way you will always have a fresh and exclusive look without getting tired of braids. We have gathered some stunning fishtail braided hairstyles here that will work for hair of any texture and length. Take a look and get inspired!
First, let’s start explaining how to create an ordinary fishtail braid, in case you’re not familiar with the technique. You divide the original hair strand into two sections. Then you take a small part of hair from the outside part of the first section and pass it to the second section. Repeat the same action on the other side of the hair section. Just remember to keep these hair sections as small as possible so that fishtail effect will be more evident. Creating a fishtail braid can be a long procedure, if you have long hair, however, the stunning result is guaranteed.
Fishtail Headband Tutorial
This style is a light, summer look, which is easy to do with longer or medium length hair. First you need to separate two equal small strands of hair from each side. If you have side bangs, it’s better to leave them out of the strands. With each strand you need to create a fishtail braid. When done you should secure the ends of the braids with an elastic band. Then each braid should be crossed over the head and secured with bobby pins. This will create a crown-like two-line fishtail headband. The rest of the hair can be curled or made into waves for a more elegant look.
Fishtail Bun Tutorial
The fishtail bun is great for longer hair. You start up right from the top part of hair grabbing two even sections of hair. Start crossing the hair to create a braid. With every loop you need to add small sections of hair from each side, which is similar to what you usually do with a fishtail braid. As soon as you reach the area around your ear, you need to stop taking more hair and finish up your braid with a typical fishtail braid. The rest of the hair needs to be made into a ponytail. The ponytail should be as high as possible. You should twist the hair in ponytail to create a bun. Then you can add the fishtail braid to the bun trying to make some improvises with the styling options. To secure the bun you should use as many bobby pins as necessary. As a final touch you can add some hairspray.
Side Fishtail Braid Tutorial
To make a side fishtail braid more highlighted you need to curl you hair into large curls either with a wide-barrel curling iron or hair curlers. Then you need to separate a small section of hair on one of the sides. Simply start twisting the hair while dividing it into two sections, with each loop you should add more hair. When you reach the area where you can start the typical fishtail braid, you need to secure the twisted hair. Then you start with the braid. There will be no additional need to mention the technique. When done, secure the braid with an elastic band. Just do not forget to use some hairspray to make your curls stay longer.
Upside Down Fishtail Braided Bun Tutorial
Have you ever thought of having an upside down fishtail braid? If you have long hair, you need to start plaiting it, if not it’s better to think of getting hair extensions beforehand. So you start separating a round area on the top part of your head. Then you need to gather your hair into a ponytail. To make the bun look bigger, use the sock bun method. The rest of the hair should be divided into two sections and each of them into two smaller sections. You need to end up having two prepared fishtail braids – one on each side. When done with the fishtail braids, you have to make the twist around your head and move it close to the bun. Make sure that each braid goes to the opposite direction for the more stylish finish. The loose ends can be secured with bobby pins.
Fishtail Braided Ponytail Tutorial
Another crazy and hippie fishtail braid style is the ponytail with fishtail braid in. You start up making your hair curly. And again you can either use curlers or a curling iron. The curls should not be ideal, but just perfect for a ponytail. When finished curling, you should grab two smaller sections of hair from each side and twist them. Then you should start plaiting a fishtail braid. When reaching the area close to your ears, stop braiding. This is the part, where the rest of the hair will be added to the unbraided part of the hair and turned into a ponytail. Secure your braided ponytail with an elastic band and that’s it. Pretty easy, huh?
Asymmetric Fishtail Bun Tutorial
To have the fishtail braid turned into a bit more elegant and fancy style, you can use a simple trick. All you have to do is use uneven strands of hair for the style. First, you should start the braid from one of the sides upon your preference. When adding small sections of hair, you can add more hair from the opposite side. This way you end up having an uneven side braid. The end of the braid can be twisted and turned into an elegant side bun. You can use bobby pins to secure the braided bun. And a bit of hairspray will do its job.
Ever thought that there could exist so many ways if styling fishtail braids? You don’t lack creativeness now, simply work the style that you have loved most of all!
