Intertwining fishtails.

This braid falls into the category of “boredom braids.” So named because they look as if they were done while watching TV or lying in bed reading a book. Make sure to give the bottom portion of the braid extra tousling and leave yourself a good 10 inches of loose hair to keep everything proportional.
