Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know milkmaid braids have made a comeback this season and are having a moment in the beauty world. If you thought that the elegant braid style of the early 2000s was never to be seen again, you were clearly wrong!
Milkmaid braids are oh-so classy and surprisingly can be rocked with any outfit and on any occasion. Seriously, think about it—you can sport it with an Indian outfit, a boho-chic dress, formals and even red-carpet gowns and look equally stunning.
This ever-so versatile, avant-garde hairdo is exactly what was missing from your beauty look book and now's the time to try it out. Here is a step-by-step tutorial for you to get the pretty and stylish milkmaid braids easily.
- 1 hair brush
- 2 hair ties
- 4 Bobby Pins
Step 1: Brush your hair and create a neat centre parting, dividing your hair into two equal sections.
Step 2: Braid both the sections in three-strand braids like you normally do and secure with hair ties at the very end.
Step 3: Once you’re done braiding both sections, stick a finger in the upper part of one braid and make a gap. Pull the other braid through that hollow gap and pin it on the other side, tucking the ends in.
BB pro tip: If you’re working a headband-style milkmaid braid, pull the braid over your head and if you want a low milkmaid braid, take the braid from the back of your head.
Step 4: Do the exact same thing with the other braid and pin it up using the bobby pins. Tame any flyaways and secure the hairstyle with a mist of hairspray.
