Heidi braids with fabric

How pretty are these heidi braids from the Rachel Roy fall 2011 show? Refinery 29 just did a great tutorial. (And it would be cute with the new heart scarf from ban.do.)

P.S. More pretty hair!

I love braids! When I wear these I feel like Maude from Harold and Maude :)
The fabric is such a fun twist.

Joy C. said...

This is beautiful! Great spring hair idea!

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, an invitation, that's hilarious :)

gia said...

I can totally picture those braids on you Joanna- this summer maybe!

Laura Nicole said...

gorgeous! ive always wanted to do my hair like that! love the post!

Stephanie said...

Whoa! $95 for a scarf?! That's way out of my budget. Its very pretty, but I much prefer the hunt for vintage Vera scarves. I found one for .50 cents one time at a vintage by the pound store here in SF! Others I've found on etsy average around $30.

I wish my hair was long enough already for all these cute ideas! Grow hair, grow!

Mrs. C said...

I used to wear this style all the time when I was younger!!! It is so chic!!! LOVE the photos!!

Joanna Goddard said...

good tip, stephanie, thank you!!

Liv said...

Braids are such a simple way to make the hair look "done", I don't have very long hair so I just tie the braids back in a ballerina knot.

marie said...

sooo cute! do you have any suggestions for those of us with really thick hair?

Lilacs In May said...

I know lots of 13 year olds who would LOVE this look, thx

Amber said...

I remember asking my mom to braid my hair like this when I was about six because my babysitter always braided fabric into her hair. Everything always comes back!

Lotta said...

I've never had a long hair to do these kind of hair-artworks, but all your hair tutorials and hair posts in general make me want to grow my hair really really long.. and while waiting I'm still going to get inspired by your cute hair posts :) have a nice weekend!

Nicole LeLacheur said...

I love this, I've been meaning to start wearing fabric in my hair, I love that look.

Jet said...

GASP!
You know what I'm going to have to do now? I'm taking out my mama's old scarves that I've saved from years ago and I'm going to do my very best at working one or two into a braid in my hair. And you also know what? I'm going to put on a sassy little dress and be decked out in both for a picnic my husband and I are having (in a field of wildflowers!) to celebrate our wedding anniversary this coming week. Perfect! Thank you for sharing this...

Fashionista Feel Good said...

This is perfect! I just wrote a post on printed scarfs at my site FashionistaFeelGood.com and this is such a great way to put a scarf to use!

TheCornerOME said...

My favorite memory of my great grandmother is when she would ask me to braid her hair with a ribbon. Thank you for reminding me of this most cherished moment :)

Eva / Sycamore Street Press said...

What a great idea! My mom , too, used to braid my hair with ribbons in it sometimes when I was little. I'd forgotten all about it.

Émilie said...

It can't work as a matter of fact, that's what I suppose.
