Heidi braids are super cute. Almost too cute, but in a good way. I actually wore this braided hairstyle under a giant Afro wig today. It was disco ’70s day at the office (hence the smoky eye). I figured this was a good way to trap my really long hair under a wig while also creating a hairstyle that was cute enough to wear sans the wig for daycare drop off. It’s super easy to do. Here’s the deal:
Step 1: Part your hair down the middle.
Step 2: Regular braid both sides. Secure each braid with an elastic.
Step 3: Wrap one braid up toward the top of your head (about two inches back from your hairline) and tuck your ends under before securing with bobby pins.
Step 4: Repeat on the opposite side.
