Easy Heidi Braids is a great way to create a crown braid without any French or Dutch braiding! It also works well for shorter hair too!
My hair was a little bit dirty and I didn’t feel like dutch braiding all my hair around my head so it became the perfect opportunity for some Heidi Braids.
Follow the steps below to learn how to create Easy Heidi Braids!
Step 1 / Begin by separating the hair into two halves, left and right, down the back of the head.
2 / Gather the hair on the left side and begin a regular braid directly over the ear. *This placement is vital to avoiding having the bumps stick out at the end.
3 / Stretch the braid across the top of the head and gently loosen the sides to make it fuller.
4 / Pin the end down against the head so it feels secure.
5 / Repeat the same steps with the hair on the right side.
6 / Finish with hairspray to smooth down any flyaways.
