Heidi Braids Tutorial

Guys, I think we can all agree that hair dos can be tricky. I love interesting and pretty hair styles as much as the next girl, but sometimes they can be impossible to figure out! Luckily, after years of devouring Pinterest and beauty blogs, I've figured out some easier versions of gorgeous hairstyles which I am going to share with you all :D

Here is a very simple tutorial for Heidi braids! I love the way this hairstyle looks, and it's fairly simple to pull off. This hairstyle works best for medium length hairstyles, but can be adapted for shorter or longer hair!

1. First, grab a handful of bobby pins and some mini elastics!

2. Feel free to leave your natural part, and separate your hair into two equal sections.

3. Begin braiding the first section of hair. Braid tightly at the root, and as you continue, pull your braid toward the ceiling. 

4. Directing your braid into the air will A) make you look silly once you let go, and B) help the braid rest naturally on the top of your head! Tie the end of your braid with a mini elastic.

5. Braid the second section of hair, pulling tightly at the root.

6. Again, direct your braid into the air. Secure with an elastic.

7. Take the first braid, rest it atop your head, and being pinning the braid to your head. Remove the mini elastic once the braid is secure.

8. Take the second braid and rest it atop your head. Tuck the end of this braid into the first braid. Pin the braid to your head and remove the mini elastic.

9. Tuck any loose ends or flyaways into the braids, and pin to secure. Do your best to tuck the ends of each braid out of sight.

10. Loosen up the hair around your face! Allow your bangs to fall naturally.

Note: if your hair is shorter, begin your braids closer to the top of your head. If your hair is longer, overlap the braids and loop them toward the nape of your neck as necessary.

VOILA!! You have successfully worked your lovely locks into a simple heidi braid!
