This tutorial has been a long time coming! Up until I got tons of layers in my hair, I usually put it up to get it out of the way, and milkmaid braids are one of the cutest, easiest updos I know to execute. All you need are a brush, a couple of hair elastics, and a few bobby pins. Since my hair is really thick, I end up using quite a handful of those!
Step 1: Brush yo hair.
Step 2: Divide your hair into 2 sections.
Step 3: Braid each section, leaving as little hair in the ends as possible. Secure each braid with an elastic.
Step 4: Take one braid and wrap it along the side of your head. Secure the braid with bobby pins. I usually clip a couple on the tip of my braid and one or two around the middle part of the braid.
Step 5:: Take the other braid and wrap it around the other side of your head. Try to hide the tip and elastic of the first braid under the second braid. Again, secure with as many hair clips as you think is needed to hold the braid secure.
And you're done!
