Milkmaid Braid for Short/Midlength Hair

Left side
Right Side

First of all I have to say that I usually don't do fancy things with my hair. I wash it every morning and blowdry and style it. And then maybe I will pin some sections out of my face. But that's it.

Then I watched Meg's video this week and I was intrigued. If she could do a fancy french braid on her short hair, maybe an unskilled person like me would be able to do that on my hair too? I figured I'd give it a try and I have to say I was pretty impressed with the result (and with my french braiding skills too haha).

All you need is two hair ties, a family pack of bobby pins, hair spray and some patience.

It's really easy to do, here's how to:

1.) Part your hair in the middle, divide it into two sections and secure them with two hair ties.
2.) Take one section and completely french braid it down.
3.) Roll in the braid and use a generous amount of bobby pins so pin in on to your head. Make sure it's really secure!
4.) Do the same thing on the other side.
5.) Mist hair spray over your hair for some extra safety (Bye ozone layer).

If you need more advice (and a video tutorial on this look), I will link you to Meg's video here.

Have a lovely day!
