STEP 3: Mess
Using a couple more bobby pins, secure the braids to your head and tame sneaky stragglers. Obviously my hair is a curly explosion, so everything seems to morph together into one big hair blob… but don’t be afraid to pull out some tendrils and make it look (intentionally) messy!
After a few tries you should be able to do quick Heidi braids without even having to look in the mirror. It’s an invaluable skill when you’re commuting, caught in sudden unbearable humidity, or running to meet your mother (who always seems to bring up your questionable hygiene)!
So there you go, a quick fix to those scary, lazy, or just-wanting-to-look-like-a-Dutch-school-girl hair days.
