My Go To Hair Style: Milkmaid Braids

I don't really like to use too many heat tools on my hair and because I try to keep it as healthy as I possibly can. With that I've been wearing my hair up as much as possible to avoid all heat. For the past few months this hair style has been my go to and I've been rocking it a ton. I am talking about the milkmaid braids. I get so many compliments on it along with questions as to how I achieve it. I've debated for a while if I should do a post on this or not because I find this hair style to be very basic and super easy especially if you know how to do a braid. I figured many people may not know how to do it or are interested to see how I do mine. I am finally going to show how I achieve my milk braid hair style or "Princess Leia" like I call it ha ha. Once again it's super easy!
-I like to start off with combing my hair really good to remove any knots.
-I then part my hair right down the middle from where my bangs begin all the way to the back of my neck. Try to make it as straight as you can I usually have a mirror in front and side of me so I can see what I'm doing.
-I brush my hair to make sure there is no stray hairs. Tie one side of the hair so it won't get in the way while you are braiding.
-I make a standard braid I'm not good at describing this at all but I'm sure you can find tutorials on it on Youtube. Then I braid the other side.
-I like to tug on small strands of the braid to make the braid look a lot fuller. I do this from the ends of my hair all the way to the roots. Be careful not to tug too much.
-Once your hair is at your preferred fullness I wrap it around my head and I like to have it right next to where my bangs start. You can have yours where ever you like.
-Bobby pin away! How many bobby pins I use varies each time. I also try to apply them in a way you won't be able to see them. Try to have them hidden within your hair.
-Grab you other braid and I like to wrap this one kind of over the first one that you already have bobby pinned down. Try to cover the end of the first braid along with covering the rubber band.
-Then I tuck the very end where the rubber band is on the second braid underneath the first braid. This can be difficult sometimes but you can use your bobby pins to set them in place.
-Once you're done securing your braid with your bobby pins I once again like to tug on certain pieces of the braid to make the braid look a little more fuller.
-Hair spray your hair and you're done!



  1. Lately Milkmaid Braids have been my go to also. It's so easy and it looks like you actually took time to do your hair :) I always get compliments when I do my hair like this, so cute.

    1. Aren't they? I think sometimes people get intimidated by braids and think its so hard to do. It's one of my lazy hair styles ha ha.

  2. Hahaha, for reals. I'm always telling people, "It's so easy I'm terrible at doing hair so if I can do it I'm sure you can."

    1. I also think people think it has to come out perfect, and that is the complete opposite of me. The messier the better! lol
