Heidi Plaits

I know what you're thinking; now there's a girl with too much time on her hands! You're probably right, although it actually only took about 10 minutes to transform my hair into something Heidi would be proud of. It's just 3 French plaits, wound around my head, it looks a little messy and there are grips poking out from
every angle, but for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm still undecided whether I like it or not, is it a little ridiculous to style yourself on Heidi? (For those of you who are unaware, I'm talking about Heidi, the TV show about the girl who lived in the Swiss Alps, and definitely not Heidi Montag, just to clear that up!)

  8. I love love love that style but it's so difficult getting hair to stay up when it's long like mine is, so you can't see the ties or grips!

  10. This is great! I have been trying this out recently, but I think my hair is a bit too short still. It looks wonderful, and slightly messy is always better in my opinion :)

  15. I was thinking Montag for a second and wondering why you would want to look like her haha. These plaits are amazing. I do not believe they took 10 mins...I'm so useless at hair stuff :( A standard plait takes me about 20 mins! x

  24. Amazing hair, it's SO pretty on you too. Did you watch a youtube tutorial for this? Perfect for the windy weather too! Thanks so much for the help with the blurry images it was really nice of you. Also thank you for the compliment about my eyeshadow! I'm actually rubbish at make up, I just fill in my crease with a plum colour and blend it out with a medium brown colour. Lazy girl's make up! x

  39. I am a new follower, amazing post!

    We have two girls and I always want to do plaits! This is a great resource!

    I used to loive in Cambridge with my husband, it is a lovely spot. We have since emigrated to Cairns Australia to live our dream.

    I plan to do a future post on our family educational blog. I am sure there are manual dexterity aspects to plaiting and that for kids with small nimble hands. After a bit more research, I would love to feature this post.

    Would you be happy if you would be interested.

    We are your newest follower, please drop over and let us know your thoughts.
