How to do milkmaid braid step-by-step
Step 1: Part the hair
Part you hair down in the middle to divide your hair in 2 sections (it will be better if 2 sections are equal). If you have bangs, just leave them out. On the other hand, pull some hair strands in front to make the braid look more natural and gentle. At the same time, these hair strands play a great role on re-framing your face and softening your look.
Step 2: Start braiding
We will start to braid the first part of the hair. Divide it into 3 small equal sections then start braid as we do a regular one. When you finish, secure the braid by an elastic. If you have a lot of layers in your hair, pull it a little bit to make it tight and use bobby pins to hide the unwanted hair inside.
After finishing the first braid in the first side, do exactly the same with the other side. Once you finish, you will have two cute braids as below. To make your hair more attractive, slightly pull the braids to pancake it. Thanks to that, your hair look thicker and prettier.
Step 3: Secure the braids on the top of head
Take the braid on the right side and lay it right on top of your head. Take your bobby pin and pin this hair right down. You definitely need more than one pin to secure the hair. Your back hair will be fluffy a little bit, but don’t worry, we will fix it later.
Do the same thing with the other side. In order to cover the elastic and pins, take the braid and go right behind the first one.
Hide the end of the second braid behind the first one so it can cover the elastic that we use to secure the second braid and pin it down.
If your hair is long enough, take the right braid, wrap around your nape to to left front and pin it. Repeat it with the other side. Thanks to that, your back head is covered completely.
Step 4: Fix the hair and finish
Adjust the hair a little bit to have the best result. Use pin to secure the fluffy part of braid and hair to make it tighter. Use a curling iron with low heat setting to curl two strands that we already left out at the first step to make your braid look prettier. Just curl a little bit to make them softer and more feminine.
Now, we’ve done! You get a beautiful crown effortlessly with cheap cost for sure. You can add some accessories to make your milkmaid braid shine.
If you have bangs, just leave them as normal or curl them a little bit to bring you an elegant look.
