The fishbone braid is named for its fishbone appearance. The style typically includes a vertical cornrow that resembles the spine of a fish, which is connected to horizontal cornrows on each side of the vertical cornrow. The fishbone hairstyle is very versatile because it can be worn many different ways.

Fishbone Cornrows Braided to the Back

Fishbone braids could be worn to the back. You can have your fishbone braids small, medium or big. You can also swoop the hanging braids to the side to get a swoop look.

Wear Your Fishbone cornrows as an Updo

You can wear your fishbone hair style as an updo by having your stylist braid the fishbone cornrows in an upward direction. Each vertical fishbone cornrow should be braided near your hairline to the top centre of your head. You can have six big fishbone cornrows on each facet of your head, two fishbone rows in the front, two on each sides and two on the back of your head.

Half Ponytails With Fishbone Braids

Create a half ponytail by fishbone braiding your hair in an upward direction in the front and by leaving the back half of your hair down. Part your hair horizontally from your right to left ear. With the front part of your hair you can braid five fishbone cornrows near the front of your hairline to the top centre of your head. The back half of your head should be combed down to the nape of your neck.

Fishbone Plaits

Instead of doing ordinary braided plaits, create fishbone plaits. You can braid as many fishbone plaits as you like. You can part your hair into six squares, two in the front, middle and back of your head. Each section will be fishbone cornrowed.

Fishbone Tails

Pigtails can be braided up into fishbone tails. You can have a fishbone tail on one half of your head braided downward toward the nape of your neck, and the other side of your head will have another fishbone tail.
