Bring your own unique style to the festival scene this year with a dip-dye fishtail braid, as styled by ghd.

Try a chunky fat plait with temporary colour this summer - the perfect festival hairstyle if you don’t want to commit. Whether you’re in a muddy field or sat soaking up the sun abroad, achieve festival hair that’s suited to wherever the music takes you with a simple fishtail braid and add a pop of colour at the ends to really bring it to life.

Stand out from the crowd with a festival hairstyle that epitomises the edgy and free-spirited festival vibes with our how-to guide. 


Here’s how to create a dip-dye faux fishtail braid


1. Tie hair into a low side ponytail

2. Wrap a clip-in extension around it

3. Split into two, crossover and twist

4. Repeat through entire length

5. Pull out sections for texture

6. Colour in the ends with chalk


step one: Tie hair into a low side ponytail

Using an elastic tie, collect the hair at the back of your head and tie into a low side ponytail. 

step two: Wrap a clip-in extension around it

To give your hair added length, wrap a clip-in extension around the base of the ponytail.

step three: Split into two, crossover and twist

Taking both your natural ponytail and the added hair extension, create two sections of hair. Cross the two sections over and begin to twist together to create your fishtail braid. 

step four: Repeat through entire length

Repeat step three throughout the lengths of your hair, until you reach the ends. 

step five: Pull out sections for texture

Add texture to your fishtail braid by gently loosening out each section.  

step six: Colour in the ends with chalk

Bring your festival hair fishtail to life by adding a pop of colour to the end using chalk.
