You don’t need to be a hairdresser or experienced YouTuber to create a killer hairstyle, and this week we’re focusing on milkmaid braids. This easy to achieve hairstyle takes just minutes (depending on the thickness and length of your hair), and creates an elegant up-do using just hairspray and bobby pins.
What you will need:
Bobby pins (and a lot of them)
1. Comb through your hair to ensure that there aren’t any knots or tangles. Start from top to bottom, slowly making your way down the length of your hair. For wavy hair, straighten your hair slightly with a straightening iron to ensure that your hair is easier to work with.
2. Divide your hair into two sections, and start braiding your hair in the back (at the nape of your neck). Braid all the way down, then secure with an elastic band. Repeat the same step on the other side.
3. Now flip one braid onto the opposite side of your head, and tuck behind your ear. Pin it down securely. Do the same with the other side, making sure to have the braids completely cross over.
4. If you have stray pieces of hair at the front of your face, feel free to curl these with your hands or a curling wand for an extra bohemian look.
