Summer Braids

There's a lot of really good tutorials online on how to style your hair in milkmaid/Heidi braids, despite this I'm adding my own less astounding tutorial to the mix!
The song is "Kiss With A Fist" by Florence and the Machine.

So cute! I love your hair tutorial videos. You make it look so easy! Although, I think my hair has too many layers for braids - they never seem to stay.

Charmalade said...

Not that my hair is long enough to do this, but I like this video purely for the awesome music you chose to play in the background. :D

Great tutorial! Makes me miss my long hair oh so much.

Vanessa said...

What a great little tutorial. My hair is definitely long enough, but I have soooo many layers, I'd have to use 100 bobby pins. Regardless, I'll give it a try.

Matilda said...

Thanks for the video! :)
Unfortunately, my hair is only shoulder length right now so I don't know if I can do do it like that, but I guess its worth a shot, right?

Harriet said...

Wow I literally tried this just now in front of your video and it really works! I didn't think my hair would be long enough but although my braids don't quite overlap and aren't nearly as thick as yours I'm pretty pleased with the result! Thanks for the handy video!

Sarah said...

Thanks for this. I will give it a go. xx

Brittan said...

I was quite literally searching online for a bob that I could hack off myself when I realized I hadn't checked your blog for a few days. You just kept me from making a big mistake. Big. HUGE. Thanks so much for reminding me that when all else fails, there is always braids!

Dress up scientist said...

Yeah your video really looks awesome. I have thin asian hair.... barely a pony tail when I put it up. Braids like yours are beautiful but unfortunately, a no go for me. BOO.

Meghan V. said...

Incredibly helpful and great song choice. You look so young.

Lexie, Little Boat said...

great video .. but are we ever going to hear you talk?! i feel like after reading your blog for so long i should have a voice to go with the words! or maybe you already have posted a talking video and i just missed it?

ps. you forgot the first step ... have really long hair! ;)

xoLauraox09 said...

Cute and easy! Perfect. I've been learning how to do all sorts of braids as well for the summer. Another one to check off my list. :)

reckless daughter said...

my front layers need to be just a little longer to pull this off properly but I do sport the look occasionally... your briads look incredible.
