Easy Side Fishtail
  • GET THE LOOK

Easy side fishtail

Achieve style at its simplest with an easy side fishtail braid. Whether you’re rocking out at a festival or looking for a go-to casual look, choose a braided hairstyle that epitomises laidback luxe. Braids don’t have to be tight and taut – this fishtail braid showcases a loose, breezy plait with a tousled texture.

The key to an edgy side fishtail is an undone finish. Before braiding hair, the ghd paddle brush will allow you create a deep side parting to form your braid hairstyle. Loosen off sections of hair at your hairline and use the ghd platinum® styler to craft wavy movement. Stretching your plaits out and working your fingers through your wavy tendrils guarantees a laidback finish for your braid hairstyle.

Get chic casual style with an easy side fishtail. Follow the ghd how-to guide and master this boho braided hairstyle.
