Braid 2-Fishtail Heidi Braids is a new take on the traditional Heidi Braids.

I did the older tutorial on my sister, Sarah because my hair wasn’t long enough. Her hair is so gorgeous I tell her almost every day how quickly I would trade with her if I could.

The trick with Heidi braids is getting the back to look right. In the previous tutorial, I braided two pigtail style braids and wrapped each side straight up and over the top of the head. With this new tutorial I figured out a way to make it more smooth and sleek in the back so click through to the video to see how this is achieved.

Here are the steps for Braid 2-Fishtail Heidi Braids:

Step 1 / Start by parting the hair into two halves; a side part and center part down the back.

Step 2 / Next tie off the right side to work with later.

Step 3 / Then combine all the hair on the left side and pull it towards the back of the head so it angles towards the right side.

Step 4 / Create a fishtail braid by separating the hair into two halves and taking a smaller piece from one side and crossing it over the top to the opposite side.

Step 5 / Then repeat this on the opposite side, bringing a smaller section from one side, crossing it over the top, and adding it to the other side.

Step 6 / Continue braiding down to the end of the braid and tie off the end with an elastic.

Step 7 / Now repeat steps 3 through 6 with the hair on the right side.

Step 8 / Once both sides are braided, take the braid hanging on the right side and wrap it over the top of the head, securing it in place with hair pins.

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 ribbon and set it right behind the braids, pinning it down under the braids with pins.

Braid 1-Mohawk Dutch Braid is hands-down one of my all-time favorite hairstyles…ever and have done so many different versions of this look including:

Braid 9 – Dutch Braid and Double Bun

Dutch Braided Headband Side Braid

Braid 3 – Double Dutch Braids and Bun

Braid 1 – Mini Sideswept Dutch Braid

and even made it the feature picture for my How to Braid video.

I can’t get enough! I love Dutch braids so much they will always be on serious repeat in my repertoire. I figured it was high time I show you one of my favorite versions, this Mohawk Dutch Braid, which I recently wore in my outfit post, Polka Dot Dress-Look 2!

Step 3 / Now take another strand directly behind this piece, half the size, on the right side.

Step 4 / Cross the strand on the left under the large middle strand.

Step 5 / Next, cross the strand on the right under the middle strand.

Step 6 / Cross the left strand under the middle and bring in a section of hair.

Step 7 / Cross the right strand under the middle and bring in a section of hair angling the braid so it is slightly off center.

Step 8 / Continue braiding the Dutch braid so it stays off center and curves around the ear and down to the left side of the nape of the neck.

Step 9 / Once the braid reaches the neck, finish in a regular style braid so it lays over the left shoulder.

Step 10 / Tie off the braid with an elastic band.

Waterfall Fishtail French Braids | MissySue.com

Waterfall and Fishtail French Braids is a twist on Braid 20 – Double Headband Waterfall Braids and something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time.

I often psyche myself out on certain hairstyle thinking they are too difficult to do and immediately forgetting about them. I thought this one would be the case and tried it a few times with a dutch braided waterfall first before finally convincing myself it had to be a french braided waterfall. Suddenly it was easy peasy. I love the seamless look of both braids and will continue working on a Dutch braided version because we all know how much I loooooove the dutch braids.

Follow theses steps or jump down to the video tutorial:

Step 1 / Start by brushing the hair and parting it on the right side.

Step 2 / Next, separate out a portion of hair from the forehead to about 2″ back and down to the left ear.

Step 3 / Tie off the back portion.

Step 4 / Next, take a section of hair right at the part and divide it into three sections.

Step 5 / Cross the back strand over the middle.

Step 6 / Now cross the front strand over the middle.

Step 7 / Then drop the back piece over the other side of the head and pull in a strand below it in its place.

Step 8 / Next, cross the right strand over the middle and bring in a section of hair.

Step 9 / Repeat steps 7 and 8 until reaching the end of the hair.

Step 10 / Tie off the braid with an elastic band.

Step 11 / Let out the back hair that was tied off previously.

Step 12 / Create another section of hair by drawing a line from the back of the crown down to the nape of the neck.

Step 13 / Tie off the back portion of hair.

Step 14 / Now create a fishtail french braid pulling in the waterfall pieces on the front side.

Step 15 / Once the braid reaches the neck, let out the tied off portion and begin adding it into the braid.

Step 16 / Finish the braid by creating a regular fishtail braid over the left shoulder.
