19 Fishtail Hairstyles for that hip look

Fishtail hairstyles are all the rage these days. Although they have been around since eternity I first found out about them while studying in California. All the hipsters and cooler girls would tie their hair up this way. What’s cool is that there are many variations that fishtail hairstyles can take. You can braid short ones while letting the rest of your hair loose or you can go viking queen tie it up really thick.
