If you're looking for a new braided style then why not try a side-swept fishtail braid? The fishtail braid, also known as the herringbone or fish bone braid due to its resemblance to the fish skeleton is a quirky alternative to a classic braid. It looks complicated but, once you've got the hang of it, it's pretty easy to achieve. If you've got naturally curly locks then don't worry, the fishtail braid looks good when it's styled messily so you don't need to straighten your hair before attempting the style. If you want to create a more relaxed look, then don't be afraid to pull some strands loose from the braid for a soft feel.
