Let’s learn how to style milkmaid braids just in a few minutes!

A great tip is to make your braids closer to the forehead for the best result. And if your hair isn’t long enough, you can turn to some hair extensions. Start by making a center parting and splitting your tresses into two sections. Plait the two sections into simple braids and secure them with elastic bands. Make sure to hold the braid to the opposite side while braiding so that it’ll lie flat when wrapped. Now, take the end of each braid and overlap them over the crown of the head, making a beautiful headband. Once you have wrapped one braid behind the hairline and across the top of your head, use some bobby pins to secure it there. Repeat the action with the other braid too. Finally, secure the braids in the center with some more pins and apply some hair spray for long-lasting fixation. If you want to get a more natural and romantic effect, you can loosen the braids a little.

To inject a bohemian flair to your milkmaid braids, you can turn to various cute hair accessories, such as sparkling barrettes and some lovely floral clips. A great trick is to try milkmaid braids interwoven with colorful stripes of fabric. It’s easy to create this look: just take a thin strip of fabric and weave it through the braid, after you have divided your tresses into two sections. So easy, but so cheerful and lovely!
