Bridal Fishtail Braid / Wedding Hairstyles

Perhaps one of the best hairstyle tips for the bride-to-be is to be comfortable with your hair. Try out a few test runs and don’t go too crazy with a new hair color or a spontaneous hair cut right before the big day. After all, when he sees you walking down the aisle you want him to recognize you, right? I kid, I kid. ;) You get the idea.

We spotted this shoot via Bridal Musings featuring a gorgeous bride with a bridal fishtail braid for her bridal shoot. And, let me tell you – she totally rocked it. This proves the point that wedding hair doesn’t need to be complicated. You can still look chic with an understated coif. In this example, the bride looks happy, relaxed and sophisticated. We love!

I’ve been growing my hair for awhile and I think I finally reached a length to make this fishtail braid happen. If your jaw dropped like mine and you want to learn how to do it yourself, check out this video with a visual step-by-step guide. I’ll be rocking out this style over the weekend! I hope you’ll give it a try, too!

More in a bit!

Fishtail braids look so much more sophisticated than regular braids, so simple and charming!


Lovely ‘do. Very casual, but the fishtail twist keeps it from looking too Raggedy Ann… But a bride’s best asset will always be her smile~
