Hair How-to: Heidi Braids Holiday Style

Add a glitzy ribbon to your braids for a festive spin on the classic Heidi hairstyle. This hair tutorial will have you holiday ready in no time!


Start this style by parting your hair down the center, from forehead to nape. Find a ribbon that complements your party outfit and place the middle across the back of your head. Temporarily secure it with a bobby pin. Then section one side of your hair into three pieces, add the ribbon to one of them, and braid like normal. Secure the end of the braid with an elastic, and then repeat on the other side. Next, pull each side up and pin on top of your head. Then tie the tails of the ribbon together so the braids join in a bow. Finally remove the bobby pin holding the ribbon in place temporarily and admire your holiday hairstyle!
