The Prom Tips Series, Volume 1: How to Make and Dress Up The Heidi Braid

Your senior high school year has come and gone.  Prom is coming.  And, if you’re not freaking out on your laptop clicking through picture after picture on Pinterest, looking for hairstyle inspiration that looks chic AND makes you stand out in the crowd, chances are you’re looking in the mirror thinking, sheesh!  How the heck am I going to pull this off?
Well, with a little effort, and a feminine, yet cool hairstyle, you can look as glamorous as you’d like on your prom night.  And what’s better than a braided hairstyle?
Why braids? For starters, braids get reinvented almost every year.  Besides, they are fun and runway girls have sported standout signature looks with plaits, deconstructed french braids and all kinds of Frida-esque crown braids.
