Braid 2-Fishtail Heidi Braids is a new version of the traditional Heidi Braids.
I did the older tutorial to my sister Sarah because my hair was not long enough. Her hair is so beautiful that almost every day I tell her how fast I would trade with her if I could.
The trick with Heidi braids is that it looks right. In the previous tutorial, I braided two braids and pulled each side up and over my head. With this new tutorial, I’ve found a way to make it softer and smoother in the background, so click through the video to see how that is achieved.
Here are the steps for Braid 2-Fishtail Heidi Braids:
Step 1 / Start by dividing the hair in half; a side part and a middle part on the back.
Step 2 / Continue tying the right side to work later.
Step 3 / Then combine all the hair on the left side and pull it towards the back of the head so that it angles towards the right side.
Step 4 / Make a fishtail braid by dividing the hair in half and taking a smaller piece from one side and crossing it over the top to the opposite side.
Step 5 / Repeat this on the opposite side, bring a smaller section from one side, cross it over the top and attach it to the other side.
Step 6 / Braid to the end of the braid and bind the end with a rubber band.
Step 7 / Repeat steps 3 through 6 with the hair on the right side.
Step 8 / Once both sides are braided, take the braid on the right side and wrap it over the top of the head and secure it with hairpins.
Step 9 / Now take the other side and wrap it over the top and place it in front of the other other braid before securing it with pins.
Step 10 / Take a piece of the tape and put it directly behind the braids and put it with pins under the braids.
