Herringbone Braid How To

I do hope you'll excuse the heavy breathing on this video. My mouth was approximately 1.2 millimeters from the camera because I had it set up on a tripod and the only way I could keep my own noggin out of the frame was to put the camera between me and the victim.

The patient. The guinea pig. Whatever.

Anyway, my point is that if my videographer wouldn't have up and quit on me because she wanted to finish her library book instead of doing take two, you would have been spared from hearing what sounds like The Hillside Strangler give you a lesson on braiding hair. But, Alas! Technical help is hard to find in these parts, so I'll have to beg you to overlook that!

Do you have a step by step tutorial you would like to share? Link up below and remember to include a link to Smockity Frocks on your post so your readers can enjoy all of the tutorials.

  1. That’s neat, I’ve never seen/heard of the Herringbone, thanks for showing that :)

  2. I’ve always wondered how to do that, so thank you! My 9-year-old wants me to do her hair like that today!

  3. Thanks for hosting another Tutorial Tuesday!

  4. It IS hard to get good help these days but your heavy breathing wasn’t so bad on this end …and your model was the picture of perfection.

    Thanks again


  5. I’ve always wondered how that was done!! Tried it, but never got it right! Thanks so much for the tutorial! I’m off to try it on my 7 year old if she’ll be such a willing participant as your sweet daughter!

  6. First of all- what a great blog! Terrific resource!

    Second- I am here to say “hi” to my fellow B90Days mentor! I am making my way around to all of the mentor’s blogs to introduce myself and get acquainted! Looking froward to seeing you around the challenge!

  7. Thank you, thank you. I knew God had a wonderful sense of humor when he gave me 3 girls, knowing I had no idea how to do hair etc. I think I can do this herringbone braid for sure. Now that pretty French Braid you did, well that may be a different story. But I will try!!

  8. Hi Connie! I’m one of the other mentors for the B90Days challenge and I just wanted to swing by and say hi. Your blog is really cute!!

    I always wanted to know how to do a herringbone! I never would have guessed it was only two strands of hair. Wow that was my something new for the day:D

  10. 2 STRANDS OF HAIR!! THAT’s what I couldn’t ever figure out about the herringbone braid! You have solved one of the great mysteries of my life! I can French braid “over” or “under” with no problem. French twist? Easy peasy. Chignon? In my sleep! And now, NOW I have the secret to the herringbone braid.
