The Herringbone Braid

A few days ago, while riding the L, I saw a girl wearing a similar braid, and started getting curious about how I could make one myself. After watching a few videos online I realized that the method would work really well with dreads.


I've never been a fan of the typical dread-braid, as mine are a bit too thick to pull it off, and I believe the look is a little confusing to the eye. The herringbone, or fish-tail braid, seems like a great alternative, and it's really easy once you understand the concept.
