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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  9. 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.

  22. 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?

  23. 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!

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

  38. 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.

  40. 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?
