Best Hairstyle Trends, Tutorials For Spring, Summer 2015, 2016: Knotted Fishtail Chignon Updo, Snake Braid Looks

“The knotted fishtail chignon is a lovely hairstyle for all you long-haired ladies,” explains Roxie Jane Hunt, contributor for www.Latest-Hairstyles.com. “The best part is that you can take this unique updo from a cozy daytime style to haute evening look. This hairstyle consists of fishtail braids, knots, and a subtle twist and pin. All you need to get started are some clear hair ties, a few large hair pins, and a good texturizing braid spray.” Now you can achieve this look in a few easy steps!

Step 1.

To begin with, flip your head upside down and spray the hair down with your texture spray to add some grip to your strands.

Part the hair down the back and create two side-by-side fishtail braids. Secure the ends with clear elastics.

Step 2.

Starting at the ends and working your way up, gently pull the braids apart a bit. This will add texture and fatten them up.

Step 3.

Take your braids and tie them together once, and then again. If your braids are long enough, tie them a third time. Don’t tie them too tight however, as you will want to leave the ends free.

Step 4.

Now take the whole knot in one hand and gently roll it into your head, tucking the ends inward towards your your scalp so that they are hidden.

Step 5.

Take a large hair pin and pin the bun into the head, beginning at the top. Make sure to get the teeth of the pin through a braid and into the base of the hair under the bun.

Step 6.

Use another large pin to pin the bun into the head from either side, securing the braided knot into the head. Add as many pins as you need to until your fishtail chignon feels secure.

Another cool hair trend is the snake braid. Here’s how to get the look:

Step 1.

Create a large diagonal forward section of hair behind your ear.

Step 2.

Split the section into three equal subsections. Apply a bit of pomade to your hand (about half the size of a dime) and smooth out each section. This will help make a smooth, clean braid. Begin braiding (a basic, three-strand braid) this section, keeping medium tension on the braid. You do not want this braid too tight or too loose.

Step 3.

Braid almost all the way down to the ends of your hair, leaving one to two inches left below where you stop the braid.

Step 4.

Take two of the sections and combine them to make one larger section (you will now only have two sections, one small and one large).

Step 5.

Take the smaller section and carefully slide it up the braid.

Step 6.

Keep sliding the smaller section up to the top of the braid.

Step 7.

Now slide the section back down to create a looser “s” pattern braid.

Step 8.

Wrap the snake braid around the back of your head and pin in place. Spray with a medium hold hairspray to add extra hold and tame any flyaways.

*TIP* Lift a small section of hair up and pin your snake braid below it. Drop the hair down so that it conceals where you pinned the braid in place.
