We’ve loved Lace Braids in our home for years, as you all know, and of course fishtails have been around for eons. What would a hairstyle look like if you combined the two into one?

Well, a fan emailed me two weeks ago with photo screenshot of this inspired style, asking for us to create a tutorial. In all my efforts, I traced the photo to an account named PeinadosSweet on Instagram. {Be sure to check her out!}

Bailey is my Lace Braid lover, so she quickly volunteered to be my model. The whole hairstyle takes about 10 minutes to create, but it can last for two days if you are careful!

We get asked a lot for sports hairstyles, or style that can be worn at the beach or pool, etc. This hairstyle fits those categories, and is perfect for summer because it pulls the hair out your face and holds fairly well.


Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

  1. Genius! I love how you find so many new ways of using simple techniques, I'm always impressed! I even saw the thumbnail, and thought, "Hurm… I bet I could figure out how she did that…"

    (I clicked, and hadn't figured it out till you explained, haha… Both parts of it I was like, "oooohhhh… Gotcha!" haha) YOU'RE AWESOME!

  2. This is such a great hairstyle ❤️ a way to modify this for short hair is to stop when you are done the lace braid and just tie it up and the back it's quick pretty and gets your hair out of your face
