A fishtail braid is simple, chic, and update on the regular braid, and is a great way to get your hair out of your face besides the top knot. What’s great about the fishtail is it’s so versatile: you can make it messy and undone for a cute daytime hairstyle, or twist it into an updo for nighttime. Or try the fishtail ponytail like Blake Lively and rock the mermaid hairstyle.
