HOTD: Saturday Casual Fish Tail Braid with Extensions

At present my hair extensions are about the right shade, but no where near the right tone – my hairs my golden/red and the extensions are more neutral brown. Still I hate not wearing them. With no Halo (See post here if you don’t know what a Halo is) from Halo Hair Extensions I’m going a little potty, not got the budget either to buy new ones at present.

If I curl them you can only barely tell the colour difference but I get a little sick of curly hair sometimes when its daily. So today I opted for something different, the fish tail braid.


I clipped all my hair extensions in as normal (This is a basic 8 piece set) and then took my hair to the side and did the fish tail.With my shorter layers on the opposite side I just clipped them at the back with a couple of curvy grips/hair grips/bobby pins.

It takes about 5 minutes to do, is really simple and looks effortless too. A little hair spray finishes the deal!

If you would like me to do a tutorial on how to fish plait drop me a comment below.

Lots of Love,

  • A tutorial would be great! I always see pics of fishtail braids and think they look amazing but have no idea how to do it.
    Ps. I’ve awarded you a blog award, head over to my blog for details. Happy Sunday Mel!

    • Hi Meg,

      Firstly thanks for the award hun! 😀
      I will get a tutorial filmed this week on how to do the fishtail. My 9 year old can do the side fishtail like I have on her own hair, if she can do it – anyone can 🙂 Also followed you on Twitter and your blog x

    This looks great! I’ve just got some I&K hair extensions from so think I’ll definitely have to give the fish tail braid a go. A video tutorial would be great though x
