The fishbone hairstyle is sometimes called a fishtail or spikelet. This braid is fine and voluminous, which is equally good for casual and formal looks.
Features of the "fish bone" hairstyle
"Fishtail" is a versatile braided hairstyle that is suitable for owners of thick and thin hair, straight and curly, long and growing just below the shoulders. It can even be done by girls with a ladder haircut, since short strands can be reliably hidden in such a braid. Highlighting will successfully emphasize the beautiful relief of the braid.
At first glance, the "fishbone" seems to be a rather intricate small weaving. However, this is the simplest version of the braid from all existing ones - it uses only two strands. Weaving "spikelet" can be the basis for creating complex evening and wedding hairstyles.
In the festive version of the "fishbone" to add extra volume and length to the hairstyle, you can use false strands of artificial or natural material. Weaving allows you to reliably hide the attachment points, and with a good color selection, this hairstyle looks very natural. Teens and young girls can experiment by adding colored woolen threads to the braid, which need to be secured by tying them at the roots of the strands at the beginning of weaving.
Stages of creating a fishbone hairstyle
Fishtail braid works equally well for clean and dirty hair. In the latter case, the hairstyle will even hold better.
Comb your hair and lightly dampen it with water or a special toner. So they will be less tangled and electrified during the weaving process.
Divide your hair gently into two sections. Separate a thin strand from the outer edge of one half and bring it to the middle. Separate the same strand from the other side of the head and also move it to the center of the weave. The strands must be intertwined, winding them behind each other.
Now take a section of hair again next to the one you started with and move it to the middle. Repeat the operation on the other side of the head. The final look of the hairstyle depends on the thickness of the strands. Thin braiding looks more neat and graceful, and large strands add volume and slight carelessness to the hairstyle.
Continue braiding until you braid all the way through. Secure the tip with a hair elastic. You can leave the "Fishbone" as it is, or you can add extra volume to it. To do this, you need to slightly tousle the braid, pulling the strands from the weaving sections in turn from top to bottom. Thus, you will visually make your hairstyle more luxuriant and a little messy.
