It’s that time again! This week star curator, Polina Berdos shows us how to do a Heidi hair braid worthy of Coachella! Follow her easy step by step video tutorial below to get the look we saw everywhere on the AW14 catwalks in February. 

Over to you, Polina…

“I decided to try something soft and pretty, but I definitely wanted something beyond the usual braid or bun. Heidi braids have been a go-to style lately.They’re easy, keep your hair out of your face, and are relatively painless. I did these kind of fast, but they can be as messy or as sleek as you would like.

The style looks much more complicated than it really is and it’s a great new way to style your hair if it is shoulder-length or longer. You can clip in a couple of extensions if you need to add more volume or length.

Bobby pins are the secret to making this hair-do. Don’t be afraid to use a lot of bobby pins, they will help you to secure your braids.

For this style you will need: A comb, bobby pins, hair bands and some hairspray, all of which can be found in my Shopcade list. Have fun!”
