Heidi Braid Tutorial

I got a couple of requests to see the Heidi braids better as well as a tutorial to see how I did them. 

So here you go!! :)


Part your hair into two equal parts as you would do to begin any pigtail braids.


Braid both sides as regular braided pigtails.


Take one braid and pull it over to the other side.


Loop it around to the top of your head


Pull the braid all the way to the top of your head. 

You can adjust to where you want the braids to sit on the top of your head.


I use these mini clippies to clip them into my hair. 

Try to find the same color clippies as your hair so that they blend into your head.


Clip braid into place.


Tuck the little "tail" underneath the braid to hide them.

Repeat for the other side. :)


There you go!


Hope this was helpful!

 I'm planning to do a curly hair tutorial soon since a lot of you have asked for that as well!
